Just the perfect jewelry design for a "blue jean" type of gall!! Emily had the patience to help me understand how this necklace would adjust in size, even when I was having a "brain-dead" moment! ;) Very pleased with this artist and the necklace!! Would definitely recommend!!
Creating Stories. Raising Babies.
I grew up on a farm in the rolling fields of North Georgia. I played music and rode my horses where you can smell the grass in the summer, and I'm still convinced you can catch a touch of the sea in the spring. From the youngest age I was encouraged to create and discover.
When I was eight I started a pottery business to pay for my first horse. I made pots and clay necklaces and sold them to local gift shops. That was the first time I remember realizing that I could actually work my whole life doing something that I also truly loved.
When I was older I married my Knight in shining armor (literally. We met when he was a knight at the dinner show Medieval Times, and I came to watch), and had babies. I stayed home to raise our children, but I still believed that I could work as a creator as well as a mom. Because both are something I love deeply, and I don't think I have to choose.
I believe that every old thing deserves a second chance to give life and grace to something new, and that every person should own a little piece that someone else poured their love and care into. That is how my etsy was born.
My shop name is after my daughter. Her middle name is Shenandoah, which is a beautiful park and valley in Virginia. Some say that it means "valley of the stars." Either way, I think it's magical, and that it's exactly the thing I want everyone to feel who owns a piece I've made or found.
Now I raise our children, and we go on adventures to find old treasures. When the house is quiet and the baby is asleep I create. And it's a beautiful life.

I live with my husband and 7 month old daughter in beautiful Atlanta, Georgia. I have loved finding treasures and creating since I my earliest memory.
I also do custom orders so feel free to contact me!
Accepted payment methods
I will also accept check or money order upon request, but please understand that for these payment methods I must wait until I receive the payment and it clears (in the case of checks) to ship your purchase. Though I would love you send it to you right away, I'm sure you understand the liability in doing this. So if you want your item quickly, paypal will be the best route!
I will ship to the address listed in etsy, so please let me know if you want your item shipped to a different address.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will either refund or replace any item damaged during shipping. All other refunds will be viewed on a case by case basis, but I will do my very best to make sure that you are happy!
