I found Evelyn Siatra on one of my fave fashionistas website senseofashion.com. All her creations are all one-of-a-kind handmade accessories including shrugs, scarves, hats, capelets and bags. I love her hand-knitted sandals! I cheated a bit and found the following text and interview on senseofashion.com:
Evelyn Siatra, 43, makes these crochet sandals under the self explanatory name of Creations by Eve. She comes from the “beautiful small town of Alexandroupolis”, in the north of Greece, but is currently living in Athens. Eve was taught how to crochet by her mother, when she was very young.“I began playing with yarn making clothes for my dolls,” she tells Sense of Fashion “then later, in high school, I learnt knitting and it has grown into a passion. Some months ago I stumbled onto felting and I was amazed by this wonderful craft.
