I love to create, it has always been something that's just been 'in my blood'. I come from a long line of seamstresses and quilters but have found myself branching out in other mediums and now I am loving creating jewelry.
I started jewelry making for the second time (first was in jr. high!) after I had my second son when my body was kind of out of control and I wasn't feeling good about myself. Then I found some pearls I fell in LOVE with and couldn't resist buying figuring I could makes something out of it. It all began from there. I think I fell in love with it because you can wear earrings and necklaces regardless of your size, shape, age. Jewelry is timeless. It is unique. And for me it was one of the things that helped me begin to feel beautiful again. A great pair of earrings makes me feel put together and elegant even if I'm wearing yoga pants, my house is a mess and my kids are running around…
