Connie Marie - Where Redwoods meet the Sea's Profile

About

As the saying goes, "home is where the heart is" and this quote speaks volumes in describing my life. Being born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I consider myself a native to my current hometown of Gasquet, California, population 505. Choosing to remain on the West Coast, I found myself in the greater Bay Area shortly after high school only to find myself longing to return to the natural beauty and serenity that this little town offers. It’s no wonder I would return to this area as an adult; to this day, it still beholds my heart with its majestic and last wild river of California, the Smith River, located in Six Rivers National Forest. Known for its crystal clear water, ancient rock canyons, magical fern-laced Redwood Forests, native wildflowers and the Pacific Ocean. All of these gifts from Mother Nature remain my true muse with regard to my jewelry creations.

Over the years, I have loved and enjoyed several career choices, all different, yet all greatly fulfilling in its own way. I started as a clerk in the business office and Pediatric ward of a large northern hospital, worked my way to General Manager/Project Coordinator in the office of two Investment and Real Estate Corporations, went back to school to explore and gain my degree in Culinary Arts and ended as a teaching mentor to teens and tweens. As I wait for the next chapter to present itself, I enjoy my hobby of designing and creating jewelry. Each piece is made hoping to bring a smile to the individual who wears it. If you love the great outdoors and rustic elegance with a touch of western charm, my jewelry just might put a smile on your face as well. Thank you for taking the time to read this and have a wonderful day. Connie
