I live in Staten Island, N.Y. with my husband, my mother, and our two canine campanions, Bella and Lilo. I have enjoyed crafting with my mother for many years. Knitting, sewing and needlepoint projects are some long time craftwork. One craft I picked up along the way is jewelry making.

My niece came to visit for one of the holidays. With her camera in tow, she said she would help me get started on etsy.com. She snapped so many pictures for my banner, using shells from many of our beach vacations from near and far; Staten Island and the Jersey Shore, to Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Florida. We would always pick up a shell or two either at the waters’ edge or in the sand alongside the blanket. Side by side, we selected the pictures that we liked best. By the end of the day, ChristinePearlPatch.etsy.com was online. I am so grateful for all her help. Thanks Gina!

I hope you enjoy shopping today. Come back soon!
