My mission is to create one of a kind and personalized accessories that you will love wearing again and again. I value personal style and don’t believe in following trends, but in creating your own.
I have a strong consideration for the environment, and I take much pride in using recycled materials and recreating them into something new. I have a very keen do-it-yourself attitude toward things, and this directly translates into creating my own packaging, labels and displays.
For now, my main focus is on reconstructing salvaged ties into spectacular and wonderfully unique accessories. I’m so fond of colours and patterns, and because of this, ties never fail to excite me.
And I hope you are excited, too. I hope you will value owning one of my creations. Something special, unusual, and that no one else has. Something one of a kind, just like you.

These vintage-inspired hair pieces are skillfully upcycled and reconstructed from salvaged ties and made to resemble flower buds. Each one has has been carefully washed, ironed and handcrafted...
tweek was spotlighted in Etsy's Storque in an article called Revenge of the Nerds! What an honour!
I tried running my own web shop for some time... but then realized it'd probably be easier, much easier, if I didn't do everything myself. Enter Etsy!Yay!
