I started from the need to look the part while working in retail management. Making jewelry for herself and friends, her jewelry was born. Then our sweet little boy was born, he was born 2 months early and so very small we weren't sure he was going to make it ,but he is here and the happiest little guy you ever wanted to have grace your life. If I I didn't have a creative outlet, making jewelry, I don't know what I would have done with the 4 months he was in the hospital. Staying night and day leaving at 2 or 3 am and back again in the morning. Making earrings for all the NICU nurses, the better he got, the more complicated my designs have become over the years, Not unlike life. But some times simplicity is best. This may explain the gamut of designs that complete my Christopher's Closet Collection!
The sales from my shop go to make his life better,he has many challenges now, but he has happiness that others may never know, what more could you ask for in life.
Thanks for buying handmade!
