ANITA SHIELS OF ANITA SHIELS ART

Interestingly enough I never dreamed of selling my art as a business. It blossomed from a hobby into a small little business because of the feedback and support of family and friends. I have 2 boys and have been lucky enough to dedicate my time to raising them. Now that they are more independent, I have more time to work on my art. With the piles of art growing around the house, a friend encouraged me to contact a local store to see if they would be interested in selling some of my pieces and that is where Anita Shiels Art started.

DAFNA LIFSHITZ OF KNOT YOU KNOT ME

Fast forward to 2017. I remember macrame from being a child of the 70’s and 80’s. We had some in our home as well, and so when my mom asked me to make her some plant hangers, I was up for the challenge. I taught myself a few knots (thank you YouTube) and from there I was hooked.

I started making wall hangings and plant hangers, and opened my Etsy shop in 2017. Soon I started making necklaces for myself. They were fun little projects that I enjoyed making and wearing. When people started asking me about them, I knew I was onto something. Now I mostly make fiber jewellery.
