Kisma Kreative came into being in 2001, and it's foundation is the philosophy of using found marerials rather than purchasing the traditional materials used in various crafts. This makes what I create unusual and different, and means that Kisma has become a way for me to make a small difference for the environment while still doing what I love. I have always been busy making something or other: beading, glass painting, paper crafts, and all sorts of obscure things in between. I use elements from all these crafts.
I am Tracy Jeffery. I make all my products, by hand, myself. This means that each item is carefully crafted and unique. Wherever possible I substitute more traditional materials and craft accessories with regular household trash, developing new ways of working with these materials in order to create original and unique items. Most of the materials I use are collected by the Grahamstown community, who hate to waste anything. It is a challenge I relish, and I am sure that you will find the results inspiring. My aim is to bring recycling into everyday living by making it fun and fashionable.
