About Daleen Handcrafted Designs

Just as the fusion of two in a marriage becoming one, so is the merging of the name ”Daleen.” Derived by combining the middle names of this husband and wife team, Larry Darnell and Sarah Aleen we were able to come up with the perfect name for new endeavors.

Our goal at Daleen Handcrafted Design is to express our deepest appreciation of art, through the sublimely and beautiful medium of wood with all it’s variants complexities. Our artistic endeavor is a culmination of years of pinned up desire, to give our love of wood a shape in which people can touch and wear. That drive finally broke through, during Christmas a few years ago. Wanting to give my wife a true gift from the heart. With an under powered, old cordless Dremel. To my surprise, the influences of dad had emerged. He was always a hands on guy who believe in doing your best. The earrings l believe would’ve made him proud. It also sparked the long held dream of my wife’s desire to be more turned with her creative side.

Each unique labored and love intensive item is finished to a luxuriously smooth, feel good touch. The finishing process of the rare and exotic woods, we promote the use of environmental friendly oils and metals. Which, we feel enhances the hands on experience and strongly encourage you to explore the textures and contours.
The symbiosis between the tactile pleasure one receives from handling our jewelry and sculptures hopefully reinforces the positive relationship between ones internal world and ones external surroundings.

We continue to create new jewelry, hand sculptures “FEEL GOOD PIECES,” plus other home decor, and a special fun children’s line. Our designs are individually and uniquely handcrafted with love and passion for our craft. Check out our ETSY store Daleen Designs to purchase plus….. we also have “PIECES OF OUR PASSION” in a few stores Exotique Boutique in Durham, NC and Enspired in Windom, MN.

Sarah’s Alywillow Organics

I completed my certification for being a Independent Alywillow Specialist with Alywillow Organics an incredible company that offers organic plant-based products for your skin, yes that’s right your skin!

“These products are unlike anything you have ever used.”

This is the beginning of a new adventure for me selling and offering free consultations and share my beloved products that I have been using exclusively for 3 years. Full disclosure….I have to confess it took me “2 YEARS” to even try them! I have tried a few to many so called “natural” product and ultimately gave up and thought about developing my own products since I was tired of wasting money on things that just did not work for me, I was only able use coconut oil which would leave my skin feeling greasy and I never used any moisturizers on my face, due to excessive oil and large pores. Then, one day while strolling through the Raleigh Flea Market, I was drawn into the Alywillow store and decided to ask a few questions, and discover it was all plants and minerals, NO filler, fragrant or synthetic chemicals! I decided to put my idea on hold, and give it a try, an extremely knowledgeable young lady helped me pick the right products to help with the problems I was having and from that day on I have not looked back. My oily skin diminished and breakouts became a thing of the past….BONUS….these products are packed full of nutrients to feed my body inside and out. Plus, they smell amazing with so many other health benefits. I personally have never been happier with how my skin looks and feels. These products are not just for your face, your entire body will feel amazing to the touch after using them.
