DRD Designs was created to honor the memory of my son, Dillon R. Dziedzic  The idea originated with my son. As you can see in my "About Me" section of this blog my amazingly talented and creative son was saving his favorite pair of jeans by patching them..all hand sewn. He used various items like a bandana, scrap cloth, and even a piece of mesh fence. A short time after his passing on October 24, 2010 at the age of 24 I began to make a pair of jeans for his girlfriend in memory of him. I put a lot of love into her "memory jeans" and made them similar to his including a poem about their creation. After that family members began requesting I make them a pair and friends as well. Creating has been my therapy and there is a continued connection to my son when I am doing so. Each design is its own unique style never to be reproduced. The only thing all my items have in common is they all bear a Peace sign in some form or fashion whether it be embroirdered, a patch, sewn on or on a button. Before I knew it people were telling me I should sell my creations. I used to tell my son his unique style was marketable...I am telling him again by showing him as he looks over me to see the designs I am creating in his memory. Most recently I have sold my designs at craft shows and yesterday put my designs in another store in Glenville, New York.. La Moda Lisa...very unique store where Art meets Fashion!! Check out her website as well to see my designs and more. Happy blogging all and happy shopping..check out my etsy store or email me for custom orders!! Have a wonderful weekend. Love to all.

  2. Sounds like a true labor of love. Would I be correct that you make the jeans in childrens and adults sizes?

    Following you from the TGIF Hop and hoping you can return the love.
