Mother/Daughter Jewelry Business

I'm leaving the original story here because I think it's cute, but now I'm an empty nester having homeschooled 3 kids who are now grown and are a veterinarian, a paramedic, and a videographer. I started knitting as another hobby and have had all sorts of fun trying different knitting skills--cables, brioche, lace, Fair Isle, Mosaic, and more to come. Enjoy the shop! Below is our original story when we made jewelry:

Our jewelry business started some years back with my daughter's American Girl dolls. We used push pins to pierce their ears so that they could wear store bought post earrings (we learned how on YouTube.) I know it sounds cruel and they were so young, but they didn't seem to mind. Smiled through the whole thing.

Well, we had some craft wire, beads, and a pair of round nosed pliers laying around, and with these, Leah, the jeweler in our story, made little dangles to hang off the post earrings so "the girls" would look even more elegant.

Then one summer, our family took a trip to Kiawah Island beach where Leah collected dozens of tiny shells with holes already "drilled" in them. She didn't just string them; she got the wire out and made a chain--real people size now-handcrafting each tiny link and attaching the shells all around to make an adorable necklace. (We did tell her then that you could buy chains already made.)

We bought her some how-to books and she took off with it. It was my husband who dubbed it "The Kiawah Collection". Eventually I started "playing" with wire too and she became interested in other things as teenagers do, so now the shop is mine and Leah makes a few things here and there. Many of the jewelry pieces I make are her design.

No extra charge for this--This is a link to an AWESOME story of healing and there are others on the same page; check it out! (You'll have to copy and paste):
