Lovely necklace. Thank you very much.
It's Mimi and Memaw's Fault....
I've always loved jewelry - there is no doubt I got that from my mother and both of my Grandmothers. From a very early age I remember going through their jewelry anytime I could get away with it. I would spend literally hours spreading it all out...... and just looking at it. All of the baubles were the best baby sitter I ever had!
After a couple of very traumatic events in my life I made my very first simple bracelet after going to the craft store and buying a few supplies. The heavens opened up and the angels sang - I fell completely in love with it and still am to this day. 12 years later, those "few" supplies have grown into a workroom, and I honestly do not know what I would do if I wasn't able to create something every day. I have always been artistic in some way, but jewelry is my passion! And by the way, don't let that picture above of my workbench fool you, it rarely looks that neat, and right around the corner is a big closet stuffed to the gills with all sorts of supplies and goodies!
One of the highlights of my "jewelry life" has been in 2012, when wedding planner David Tutera from WEtv's "My Fair Wedding" requested that I create 5 bracelets for one of his brides and her bridesmaids.This episode, titled "Vintage Mermaid", aired on the WEtv Channel in September 2012. It was such an honor to be a part of this TV show, and was a very exciting time for me!
When I got married 4 years ago, my wedding was "Southern Vintage" themed, and my love of jewelry really came out in the details. I became obsessed with gold brooches, and created my bouquet out of many I found on Etsy, as well as some that were very sentimental to me. My Matron of Honor's bouquet was created with colorful brooches - and both are covered with flowers and butterflies. Our wedding cake incorporated vintage gold brooches as well, with a few of them marking each tier. My mother wanted me to adorn her little vintage white Bible she had been given to her from her Grandmother too. I took of a year off from my Etsy shop to plan our entire wedding, but jewelry was definitely always in the picture and close to my heart.
I want you to know that I strive to make my customers happy, and I stand behind my work - I will always try my best to make your Etsy experience with me a positive one. If there are ever any questions or problems I am here for you.
Thank you for taking a few moments out of your day to visit with me - I hope that you stop in my shop every now and again, and see something you like!
