We’re happy to announce an exciting new maker joining the fest this year. Making trash into fashion, Ja Nelle Pleasure will be showing off her Trashion Project. She creates clothing inspired from life around us with only recycled items and without the use of fabric.

And in true maker spirit she will also be giving fest attendees a chance to make their own piece of jewelry out of recycled items!

As she says on her blog:

My motto is “If you can envision it, I can make it.”

Who am I? I am a wife and a mother of three children. I have been designing and sewing clothes for more than 20 years.

I enjoy coming up with unique and eclectic clothing and jewelry, things that are not normally found in stores or on-line.  I find that nature, and life in general offers so many options for creativity to be expressed. You can expect to find my style and color palette to flow and ebb with the environment. There is no limit to the creative things that can come from my brain.
