About

One of my favourite movies is "Forrest Gump", and I love his quote "Life's like a box of chocolates - you never know what you are going to get!"
It is so true too, and I'm learning now that it is easier to go with what life throws at you rather than rebeling against it, because there is always a silver lining.
I guess going thru 5 years of infertility before finally conceiving thru IVF had to either make or break me - and it nearly did both! But now we have two beautiful boys, quite a change from growing up in a household with four sisters.
I've always loved collecting bits and pieces, even as a little girl, so now it is nice to be expressing myself creatively as well as utilising my hoarder tendencies (this mother of two young boys definitely needs a feminine outlet!)
I had just started selling my jewellery creations on another website in New Zealand…

I had just started selling my jewellery creations on another website in New Zealand when my husband was offered a job in Uruguay, so we moved here towards the end of 2009. Once again, you never know what is going to happen in life, so you just have to go with the flow, and what a tremendous opportunity for us to experience a different culture, travel, and introduce our sons to a new and exciting environment as well.
I look forward to introducing some new influences into my creations, as I continue in this voyage of discovery called life! (And no, I haven't always been an optimist, but I reached a point in my life when I just decided - "you only get one life, let's get on and enjoy it!" - the alternative hadn't been much fun ;-)
I hope you find something that you like amongst my collection of trinkets and adornments - happy shopping!
