Very unique leather bracelet-just as pictured. I have purchased from this shop before and the workmanship is excellent; product arrived quickly and great communication from the owner.
Holdover Hippies loving what we do
I have no idea where it started. I've always loved creating. I was that kid who made pot holders on a loom when I was 12 and sold them to all the neighbors (I had very kind neighbors).
As a teen, I made purses made from small tapestry rugs and sold them to all of ,my mother's friends (my mother had kind friends) and then it was anything macramèd - owls, purses, necklaces, belts. I've made straw-flower wall hangings, cross-stitch and needlepoint pillows and samplers. I sewed draperies, placemats, and table cloths and at one point I considered buying a commercial sewing machine to make boat covers. (yes, really)
I made all of my children's clothing when they were little (not that they were always happy about that). My mother taught me to knit and my children paid the price for that also with matching hand-knit sweaters, hats and slippers.
In the end, I'm happiest when I'm creating.
And then later in my life, along came Michael and we became Rivers Edge Candles, taking a year to perfect scents, wicks, wax blends. The mailman said he could tell what we were making as soon as he hit our driveway. (He loved "Cranberry Spice" day. He was not a fan of Jasmine). We did craft shows and fundraisers and supplied teacher gifts for all of my grandchildren every year.
And then along came Lupus - and the candles became too heavy for me to haul without a LOT of help. Time to move on to something else.
I loved making earrings, so I started there. And then earrings turned into bracelets... and necklaces... and bookmarks... and.. and... well, you get the idea.
In the beginning everything fit into a box that spent most of it's time on my dining room table. Then it covered the table. Time to move to a spare bedroom. And then another bedroom became our office with shelves filled with leather, chain, wire, findings. We are now outgrowing the house and looking for a small shop here in Wilmington, Delaware. :-)
Michael has left his "real" job and is now spending his days shipping, packing, and ordering for our six (I KNOW! SIX!) Etsy shops. I have finally retired from my "real" job and joined Michael in the land of all things Thunder Moon.
Our six shops are:
Thunder Moon Gallery
Thunder Moon Awareness
Thunder Moon Supplies
Thunder Moon Chain Shop
Thunder Moon Wire
Rivers Edge Studio
We hope that you'll visit our Etsy shops and maybe someday - our brick and mortar shop!
Have a hopeful day! ♥
