Hello there, I'm Dennice. Welcome and thank you for visiting Fringe, a crossroad of old and new, proper and defiant. I am happy you're here.

I strive for my work to be symbolic of cherished things to love, mother earth, and the craft of making something with someone in mind - from the heart.

My love for yarn and design are intertwined. Together they weave a story that I then write with my knitting needles and crochet hooks.

I began Fringe in 2005.  First locally, and then in 2007, I opened an Etsy shop. Fringe is a soulful line of handmade items dear to my heart.  These items are hand-crocheted, hand-knit, sewn, and/or embroidered with love and care by yours truly. The creations are my original designs and they include scarves, cowls, neck ruffles, capelets, shrugs, shawls, couture brooches, boot ruffles, necklaces, home goods and more. Expect an occasional surprise among the items I create. There are many types of styles in my shop. From high drama couture fashion to urban prairie and lots of styles in between. Fringe pieces are being worn all over this big, beautiful world which is amazing and such an honor.

I always create designs with the idea that they will give their owners self-confidence and joy just by wearing them.

My work has been featured on The Today Show, The Martha Stewart Show and The Uniform Project. My work was featured in Anthology Magazine - The Sartorial Issue #13, as well as Knitscene Magazine.

This blog is a way for me to share some of my personal life as well as insight into the process of creating.  New friendships always have to begin somewhere, why not here...?  I hope you enjoy the time you spend with me. I may inspire you to join me on the Fringe of fashion. Thanks again for visiting Fringe!
