As a child my mom instilled in me a love for the arts. I watched her sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, and painting all the while learning how much fun it is to create something of your own. Even on visits to the beach, visiting family, or on vacations, we were always searching for natural items to gather up and make use of.
Years ago when I was homeschooling my children, we joined a local rock & gem club to help our studies in science. We went on "digs" to learn how the rocks were formed and what was native to our area. My children have now grown but the colors and shapes of the gemstones still inspire me. They provide an eagerness to combine them in some artfully fashionable way.
Mom is still exceptionally creative especially with her skills in knitting, crocheting, and beading. I am still learning so much from her. Many of her items are for sale in the shop as well…
