About

I am an artist by heart and a psychotherapist by day and love love love to create. I like to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary .

I collect everything from bits of paper, torn up t-shirts, wood, stones, stickers,sparkles, leather, wool ,string, paints, markers even crayons.; you name it and I seem to collect it. It is somewhat a compulsion but I'm not a hoarder. I always get ideas about things and SEE what can be brought into form in a new way and then have to figure out a way to do it!

My passion is designing with beads and am always astounded by the beauty that nature creates with the assortment of gemstones available. I like to combine different materials and play with color. I enjoying making mobiles from driftwood and play with recycling fabric, bits and bobs. I like to draw and collage mandalas and use the designs…

I enjoying making mobiles from driftwood and play with recycling fabric, bits and bobs. I like to draw and collage mandalas and use the designs to create buttons, cards and other products. It is endless.

I'm inspired by nature and enjoy the process of really never knowing what the end result will be. I cannot follow patterns because they bore me and have a great respect for those who are patient enough to do this. I like the excitement of just allowing the creation to unfold and surprising my own self .This is play for me.

I am somewhat new to ETSY as I only opened up my shop in September of 2012. I totally enjoy ETSY artists and marvel at their creativity and talent too and enjoy purchasing from them and incorporating into my own work. My ETSY shop is primarily jewelry and there will be other artsy things coming into my store from time to time. Thanks for taking the time to read and get to know me better. Enjoy surfing this wonderful global community of artisans! Jody
