I love animation art
I really enjoy reading about the history of some of the old artists/animators from the 30's.
MOCK FROG was briefly mentioned in an old Monty Python skit called "Whizzo Chocolate".
What got you started crafting?
I've been doing crafts for ages. My mother taught me how to knit when I was about 12 and after that I always loved creating. Aside from knitting, I love to quilt and sew. My daughter & I have been designing jewelry for about 5 years. We began by buying up old collections of poker chips, mah jongg tiles, dominoes, buttons and found how much fun it was to create something from those materials. We've also started selling decorative pillows that we are very proud of.
What is your source of inspiration?
One word, vintage. I love vintage because I believe the older things were made better than they are today. My daughter & I used to go to a lot of estate/garage sales. We were amazed at some of the items we would find and reuse into our jewelry. Most people have never heard of bakelite plastic, but most likely have seen it.
What have you made recently?
I've recently found some wonderful triangular bakelite pieces and have started experimenting and creating some new pieces that are eye-catching and fun to wear. Stay tuned.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
We sell mostly online. MOCKFROG now has 4 shops on etsy.
You can also find us on Bonanza and on eBay.
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Handmade means unique, original, imaginative. I love creating something that has never been done before.
