Hello, My name is Dina Jolley and I am the owner and designer of Dishar Designs. I have always been a crafty kind of gal. But it wasn't until about 7 years ago that I discovered the joy of repurposing and tapped into my creative juices. It all started with a necktie that I purchased at an event that had been turned into a necklace. I completely became obsessed with the idea of turning a necktie into a necklace and started making them for myself and soon thereafter for other people.
As the necktie repurposing concept began to grow, I started finding other avenues to utilize the neckties. I used them to make pillows, placemats, home decor and accents on purses. And herein lies how I began the integrating denim into my designs. I started using ties on denim bags I was making. I soon discovered denim jeans had endless possibilities for creativity. Now I AM OBSESSED WITH DENIM!. I have made earrings from denim belt loops and coasters from denim pants pockets. From one pair of jeans you can create a whole new accessory collection from jewelry to handbags.
I like to see the art and metamorphosis of recycling everyday articles of clothing. When anyone purchases any of my designs, they can wear them knowing that they are truly one of a kind and a wearable piece of art!
