wife, mother, lover of creating & smiling

first and foremost i am a wife and mother. i live just outside of fort bragg, north carolina with a super hunky soldier, three beautiful babies (when i will stop considering them babies, i don't know), lucy the wonderdog, bo the cat who thinks he's a dog, and a perky little fish named bubbles 2 (RIP bubbles 1). art and crafting and music are a part of our everyday life... the whole family gets in on the action. only recently did i discover that i may actually be able to contribute something more than crayola colored pirate swords and construction paper princess wands... don't get me wrong, everyone needs a paper bag robot costume, but i knew there had to be something else... something just for me.

so, i bought my first set of stamps and stole my hubby's hammer (shh- don't tell!) and went to work. i was immediately hooked! when i started taking orders and the stories of people's joy and heartache came trickling in, i felt such a connection to the pieces that i was making for them. when the kids are settled and i can sneak away for some mommy time locked in my craft room, i really feel inspired. i don't take lightly the fact that i am responsible for capturing some of life's biggest events and translating them into a piece of jewelry. what an honor!

so, if you do take a peek through my shop and perhaps find something that calls to you, please drop me a line and share a story... it's my absolute favorite part of this little venture that i call SilverSanktuary :)

i am a play-at-home mom to 3 little ones, the wife of a soldier, and i love creating trinkets and treasures for friends and family. i have started this shop as a way to help keep myself organized and to house a collection of my designs. sterling silver is very popular, but expensive right now- as you will see looking around etsy and other jewelry designer's websites and stores. if there is something you see that you just love, but budget doesn't permit the price of sterling, please convo me to see if i can re-create the piece using less expensive materials (nickel silver, copper, plated silver, etc...) and i will do my best to find the alternate components. the turnaround time may increase as i may not have all of the additional materials on hand. if you have something in mind and don't see it on my page, please send me a message and we can try and come up with a perfect creation together :)
