Beads & Brass is a place for me to share my love for quality, timeless items and experiences. This site is written and curated by me, Amy.
A few years ago, I decided to make an effort to buy more American Made products as my own small way to help our economy. I was also sick of buying products that quickly broke or became worn out. I don’t believe that America is the only country with companies producing quality products, but this is a decision I’ve made to help out our manufacturing sector.
After moving to Minnesota in 2006, I developed a love affair with cold weather accessories – hats, scarves, and gloves. I started knitting in 2011 so I could create my own knit accessories. My dedication to buying made in USA products has extended into my knitting, and I love to use American sourced and spun yarns.
