In Their Own Words - Crickets Creations


My name is Celeste (my nickname is Crickets) and I hand knit luxury, designer fashion scarves. I live in the Golden Circle near the Grand Canyon, so my tagline is, “Handcrafted in the Heart of Canyon Country, USA!” Because I live in the high desert (it’s either very hot or very cold), my designs are for year-round wear. That's me in these pictures, most of my scarves are modeled in 90+ degree weather! My muse, inspiration & support is my sweetie, Nicky. I made my very first scarf for him.  He loved it so much that he said, "You could sell these and people would love them!" And since August 2007 I’ve sold over 350 scarves, so I guess he was right.

I love to play with texture and color, and typically make two to three scarves a night, whether for custom orders, special requests from the over ten retailers I supply, scarves to sell online or getting ready for craft fairs and expos. Creating is such a thrill!

i have two of celeste's scarves and absolutely love them! she has a keen way of mixing the different yarns and her designs are very unique. i have many scarves in my wardrobe, but, when i wear one of her's my friends always say..."oh that's the one you got from your etsy friend isn't it!" her work definately stands out in a crown of knitsters! love her passion for her business too!

All that is so true about Celeste, but what she is too modest to say is what a sweet, helpful, caring and smart woman she is.
