Well howdy! i have always loved art and poetry...until recently have i found my crafting and creating skills after the birth of my children :) and finding my one promised. My uncle is an artist, who creates fantastic murals and whose comical and wonderful sketches I will always remember from my childhood. Actually, there are many people in my family who do amazing work with their hands from building homes, sewing wardrobes, crocheting all things [even bikinis lol], art on paper and canvas, to building boats! So i suppose it's inevitable for me to work with my hands... it's in the genes :).

New mediums to work with, keep jumping into my lap and can't stop lol. Hence, you see many different kinds of work in my shop. I started out making my one of a kind, ballet tutu totes (copyrighted 2010-2013), then worked on resin photo jewelry keepsakes, then to silk clutches and the gorgeous art of…

New mediums to work with, keep jumping into my lap and can't stop lol. Hence, you see many different kinds of work in my shop. I started out making my one of a kind, ballet tutu totes (copyrighted 2010-2013), then worked on resin photo jewelry keepsakes, then to silk clutches and the gorgeous art of Kanzashi (handmade silk flowers). Currently, I'm enjoying metalwork; hand stamping and molding jewelry pieces, of which i am slowly expanding into different shapes and metals.

Every item i make is apart of my being, are truly thought out, researched and enjoy sending out into the world. Research? It was something that was drilled into me in grad school and yes, I do tons...why because I don't want my resin to yellow so i find the best jewelry resins that never yellow; i don't want my copper to quickly patina so i get the best art waxes (museum grade); I like my silver plated brass pieces to stay looking fresh and not react to oils on skin, so i find high grade protectants that are safe for skin but do the job; hence, there is a good deal of reading involved in creating quality, handmade items.

I also work from home, so Etsy is not my occupation so to speak, it's my hobby and I love it. I'm proud to consider myself an Etsian artist, creator, lover, and consumer. I am also on Etsy under this username handendesigns. Etsy is bursting with different and beautifully handmade items. My place here, whether buying or selling, is a melodious, pleasant refuge for me! Have a wonderful time browsing my shop, i had a wonderful time making them all!

Greatful to my Father in Heaven ΙΧΘΥΣ,
