Maria Rosa Sharrow's Profile

About

A Bit about Me:
My name is Maria Rosa Sharrow and I am the Owner and designer for Willow Street Gifts.I have been making jewelry now for 8 years I love to try new things and consider my time in my studio therapeutic. Creating helps me to feel well and energized. I know it will sound bizzare to some, but I never work in my studio if I am having a bad or less than perfect day. Since creating infuses a little part of me into every piece,
I feel that my pieces should come attached with positive energy and love.

My "real" job is to manage small health food store (which I love) & by far my most important job is being mom to sweet,funny and incredibly entertaining boy. My attitude is do what you love!!

I have always loved to create things as a child I can remember my mother being ever so multifaceted if it could be done or made, she did so. I am thankful and appreciative to her for teaching me to have a can do attitude and not being fearful of trying my hand at new things. I sell my jewelry here on Etsy but also locally in a couple of shops and the Local Farmer's Market.

I love to work with many mediums. It's as if I look at everything around me to see if I can turn it into or use it in my jewelry. My favorite materials to use by far are vintage bits and pieces. There are so many vintage styles kitschy,colorful,romantic,and playful that we just don't see today with all the mass produce jewelry sold in stores.

I also feel that the vintage goodies that I use continue to tell a story of a bygone era or the people who originally owned the pieces. Even after being,under appreciated, battered,discarded and sold off by loved one's a part of them or the time continue to live on with my pieces.

Some of my other interests include gardening,making yard art,altered art,collage,cooking,stained glass, reading,healthy living and tag sales and thrift shopping,which also led my sister and I to open another etsy shop named willow street vintage. Thanks for stopping by and if you like vintage check out our other shop!
