Who am I?
My name is Angelina, and I'm the creatrix behind Kastroll Kreations. My first love (and majority of my work) is fiber art. I've been crocheting for almost 25 years. I create wearables, accessories, jewelry, housewares, and the occasional sculpture or fiber fine art. For the last 7 years, all of my works are original, one-of-a-kind items designs. I use patterns, pictures, and fashion magazines for initial inspiration, then morph that seed of inspiration into my own design. I also dabble in silk painting, using modern resist techniques and heat-set dyes. My silks are inspired by the resurgence of Earth-based and womyn's-based spirituality. As my body of silk work grows, I hope to start offering prints and ATCs of my silks. And, since good things come in threes, I also sew. Sewing is a newer craft for me, and I am thoroughly enjoying the process.
In the "real world", I am a full-time law student and soon-to-be-first-time-mommy. Please feel free to visit my blog and Etsy Store.
