About

Blissfully Normal Hats

My blissfuly normal life as a wife and mom has me wearing many hats - so to speak. I am a taxi driver, house keeper (this one is not my favorite as it involves toilet scrubbing), a chef, nurse, cheerleader, etc. Lucky for me, I like wearing (most) hats.

Finding Etsy years ago has allowed me to wear one of my most favorite hats more often - my beret - (no, I don't really wear a beret, I just thought it was a nice visual of an artist hat). When I put on my imaginary beret I spin into a world of creativity and imagination. It is my time to be just me. I am currently a Graphic Artist, Jeweler, and Printmaker (why 'currently' - oh, who knows what color beret I will put on next).

I have worked professionally as a graphic artist for many years and I still enjoy it (need a logo?). However, I found myself wanting to work with my hands and create more rustic and unique one-of-a-kind items so, I started making jewelry...wearable art is so much fun!

What started out as a hobby making gifts for family and friends turned into a nice little side business on Etsy. It is pretty darn cool to design custom and personalized pieces for people all over the world. I still remember my first overseas order - Great Britain. What a thrilling moment that was. Aside from my designs being worn in far off lands, I have had the privilege to work on some extremely personal pieces. There have been some that brought laughter and others are filled with tears. One in particular was a September 11 remembrance bracelet. Needless to say, it is truly an honor to be chosen to create such special pieces of jewelry.

With all the personal jewelry I was creating for others (and myself of course) I began to reflect upon my own life and decided to expand my creativity into artwork that was a bit more colorful. Don't get me wrong - I still love making jewelry - I just wanted to get my hands covered in paint as well as metal dust.

I am always drawing and doodling so, I took the drawings, combined them with my graphic art background, and Whal-La I started printmaking. Once again, I turned to Etsy and opened my second shop and decided to name it Pickled Pineapple - check it out. :)

I consider myself very lucky to be an Etsy vendor and surrounded by such amazing talent. As I always say - us artists have got to stick together. Thank you Etsy!

WHAT IS UP WITH THE PLASTIC BAG???
Inside your gift box/bag you will notice I have put your order in a little plastic "ziploc" style bag. I know this is certainly not the cutest way to store your jewelry, but by keeping sterling silver away from air while not in use it really does help keep the silver from tarnishing. Also, if your order contains a lot of polished silver you will notice a little black square in the plastic bag. This little square is charcoal based and helps absorb moisture to prevent tarnishing.

MORE TARNISHING TIPS:
If you don't want you pieces in plastic baggies, try storing them with rice or chalk.
Try wearing your pieces in the shower. I find it keeps my sterling from tarnishing.
All else fails: a polishing cloth works wonders. :)
