In pursuit of me!

I wear many, many hats. Lover of my husband (my favorite), mother, educator, daughter, friend. It is in my craft that I find myself. I have been creating as long as I can recall. Each creative endeavor ultimately ended with excessive surplus of my latest pursuit. I have found success to the degree I desired with each medium I have chosen. However, it has really been with crochet , jewelry hand dyed fabrics that I have found a lasting love. Color gives me the greatest pleasure for expression and I love the textural therapy of different yarns, beads and dyes. I am no fashionista but the expressive nature of our clothing intrigues me and I am drawn to practicality which I think is always a massive drive to all my designs. I make what I like, that makes my craft always a joy! I also love to do my own photography and I am an encourager, so helping women feel feminine and classy is right up my ally! I love to show and have been showing since 2000 and do many craft shows each year, which is where I sell the majority of my product. I enjoy people and like to connect with my clients in person! This has made online sales a challenge for me but as I myself often shop online I felt the need to meet my clients here too. I was made for this and can't imagine a life without the creative process! Plus my daughters and my mother join me, model for me, support me and make a few things too! What a dream come true! The ebb and flow of life has caused at times a lull or explosion in my creative endeavors but I will for a lifetime be in the pursuit of the creative me.....

    Well, I must create. Even when I try to stop, I can't. I love hand made things and it is the pursuit of something of grandeur, of beauty, of individuality that makes my heart happy!

    At our shop she shows her chain maille but I think soon we will see some of her leather work as well. Often her pieces are inspired by characters in her writing so they have the feel of a decidedly different realm!
