i am dorkas

i am dorkas is all about collaboration. Marianna, who is Finnish & Indonesian, works closely with her Finnish Mother to create kitchen textiles. On the flip side, she works closely with her boyfriend, who is Portuguese, to create jewelry. Each one brings a fresh perspective to the table because of their different cultural backgrounds resulting in a variety of unique designs. I love the eco-friendly silk screened fabric picnic napkins & the Building Blocks aprons have a fun retro feel. The jewelry line features unique designs, such as the humorous Supper earrings. Marianna & her boyfriend have been experimenting with incorporating clock hands into their jewelry line & the results are great. I love the clockwork earrings (pictured) that are sure to turn some heads! And don't miss the hand-carved pieces made using Juniper wood found exclusively in Finland.
