Keren Peled, of Lincoln, Calif., was creative even from the early age of four years old. The clever youngster found ways to realize her childhood fantasies by creating her own playthings such as crowns knotted together with daisies and stems. Over the years, she has come up with fun ways to use her crochet and macramé skills to create stunning silver and gemstone bracelets and hair clasps.
