Tami LaPole Edmunds has taken her art — repurposing clothing, jewelry and accessories — and made a successful career out of it. Art in the Alley now has two locations in Duluth.
TLE: I have been upcycling jewelry and clothing since we opened Art in the Alley 8 years ago. I love taking apart an existing garment and using it to create a totally different piece. It is like putting together a puzzle…without knowing what the final outcome will look like.
The rewards are that I am able to make people happy by wearing a one of a kind work of art. They feel the love and energy that I put into everything I create. A customer once said, my jackets are like tattoos “Unique to your individual personality.” I enjoy visiting with the women who purchase my one of a kinds and seeing the joy that my art brings to them. It’s all about making people happy.
People can find my upcycled & repurposed jewelry, clothing and purses at either Art in the Alley stores, Downtown Duluth or in the Miller Hill Mall.
