Re-USEing, Re-PURPOSEing, Re-NEWing with Hallie Charney

I have always had a passion for fashion and art for as long as I can remember. I come from a long line of makers and artists. My grandfathers’ made mosaics and shoes; my father was a builder and my mother a painter. She taught me how to knit at a young age.

I LOVE to Re-USE, Re-PURPOSE, Re-NEW…

And I LOVE the idea of the Perfectly Imperfect…

Hallie Charney of Handmade by Hallie is a multi-medium artist, designer and maker of original, one-of-a-kind jewelry, purses, scarves and wine sleeves. I use wool yarn to handknit/felt purses and Re-USE belts for straps. My winesleeves are made from Re-PURPOSED sweater sleeves and the scarves are made from the remaining sweater parts to create something totally Re-NEWED, each one being one-of-a-kind. My jewelry is a marriage of metals that is handmade, unique and constantly changing.

When someone purchases one of my pieces, I feel like they are buying a piece of me…a Work of ART.
