About

It all started with a minor fashion crisis . . .

It was really quite simple. I needed a green necklace to accessorize several outfits. I sought a green necklace and could not anything close to the ideal piece I had pictured in my mind. First, they were either too fussy, too cutesy, too expensive, or too boring. Second, they were all the wrong shades of green, They were blue green, or hunter green, or lime green, or grass green, or Eagles green. I just wanted something in olivey-lemongrass shades of green.

After weeks of futile searching I surrendered. I decided to make my own. There is a lovely independent bead shop in the theatre district of our small town that I knew would be the place for me. Quality materials, a bit of quirkiness and a great boho atmosphere. A few dollars and an hour later I had the makings for my first necklace and I new i was hooked; completely. I hadn't even strung a bead yet and I knew I had found it. My medium. My expression. My passion.

I haven't looked back since. ; )

Welcome to my roost! a ravens rest is the love child of stress and creative drive. My innate need to be creative, the hunt for the perfect green necklace, and a serious need for a relaxing hobby has resulted in a ravens rest. Each piece is unique, none is ever duplicated and I do not create matchy-matchy items. If you are looking for a 'matching set' of earrings and necklace, you will not find it here. I make coordinating and complementary pieces, but nothing 'matches'.
