About

I am blessed to be able to do what I do because of God. I believe this is why I was put on this earth, to create the beauty within me and share my experience. I am self taught so everything I do comes from above. Through the years I have worked in lots of different mediums, to many to mention. I must say moving to NC and discovering Gourds has made a tremendous change in my creative ability. Gourds are a fascinating medium, you can take them in all directions and I am trying to do that. I have been working with them for about 8years. I don’t grow my own that is a question that I am asked often. I get most of my Gourds from Welburn Farms in California. There Gourds are nice and thick great for carving and everything else.

Just incase you may want to know I am an Eclectic Artist...as you can see throughout the shop there is no set style that I have. I just go and flow…

Just a little of info of how I come to create what I do.... my work is an art that has to be created....I take a empty canvas of a Gourd and cut and shape it to become the beauty that you see......The Jewelry that I make is Wearable Art which also has to be shaped and designed not just strung together.....has to be chisled and form into the one of a kind shapes and designs.....My prices to do not reflect the time that is involved in my creations, if so I could not sell anything.....As I said I do Love what I do because it all is a gift from our creator my Heavenly Father Jesus Christ......

I also want to say that gourders are great people I have not met one that was not willing to talk about what they do and share information.

This is my testimony!!!
I am a Christian and I believe that GOD wants us to open up our hearts and let HIS people come in to fellowship. HE does not mean only by going to church but every chance we get to talk and share the goodness in our hearts, and give HIM the praises, that HE deserves. Without HIM we are nothing.

I am forever Thanking GOD for the gift that HE has given me. GOD has allowed me in my senior years to be able to do all the things I do especially to create such amazing pieces. Thank you GOD. I give HIM all of the praise and glory for HE so richly deserves. Without HIM I am nothing With HIM I am everything.

Etsy is my new home for my creative work, glad to be here!
