Scarlette Siaotong Guerrero, CVA, Reiki Master
I have been handmaking functional goods and gifts since I was a child living in the little island of Guam. I would watch my mother, a practiced Fine Arts educator, take on various projects and always be left in awe over her immense creativity and effortless precision.
Today, I continue to pursue my own handcrafting skills in San Diego, California USA. Though a large portion of my work is created through sewing, I am passionate about many forms of handiwork including paper crafting, jewelry making, crocheting, and beading to name a few.
The massive shortage of personal protective equipment during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic helped me to realize the importance of being able to craft necessities on one's own, a skill largely overshadowed today by the ease of purchasing manufactured goods at the tap of your finger. Suddenly, my hobby became my mission.
HANDMADE by Scar strives to support the sacred skill of handmaking by promoting the use of handmade products through a curated collection of pieces created by passionate handmakers all over the world. This collection features goods ready for everyday use as well as thoughtful, unique gifts perfect for any occassion.
