I love the clever way this artist combines vintage imagery with a piece of music or quote on the back to tell her small (but lovely) stories. Another for my collection - thank you!

About

"The world is made of stories, not atoms." Muriel Rukeyser

I love many things, among them: old paper, languages and alphabets, sounds and scents of the natural world, taking photos, writing letters, listening to international music, discovering quirky little stories in everyday life.

My pendants reflect my fascination with imagining stories and encapsulating them in small ways. The hinged frames are like tiny windows through which stories peek out. I use simple and uncluttered words and images, from materials sometimes over one hundred years old. (This is how I discovered that glitter can survive across two millenia.) I also love to create custom pendants using whatever materials and concepts a client dreams up.

Current fascinations: antique French postcards, homemade kale chips, reading homesteading books (a city girl can dream....), creating found poetry, developing new products for OneSmallStory.

Everyday life: I'm a blessed wife, mother, and homeschooler. I wash clothes and do dishes. I dig around in the garden. I cook. I make my bed every day. I'm left-handed and I have very curly hair.

Thank you for visiting my shop. I'm grateful to each one who stops in!

Thank you for visiting OneSmallStory. I offer one-of-a-kind pendants crafted from original materials. I use vintage and antique photos and paper ephemera gathered from my wanderings to create double-sided pendants in which the two sides go together to tell a story, sometimes subtle, sometimes obvious. I don't scan and print images to make multiple copies of each of my pendants. When you purchase one, you are purchasing the only one that exists, a true original!
