Conected to Childhood

This shop is connected to my childhood. As a child I would make tiny things. 1 inch by 1 inch letters with words and drawings inside them that my stuffed animals would send to each other. Love letters really, with hand made stickers I swiped from from my dads computer label collection. When not running the Greater Illinois Stuffed Animal Post Office, I would wander outside in nature. Climbing trees, gathering quartz field rocks or falling into streams.

I still make tiny things. The necklaces are all hand painted and then set in bezels. The stitch markers I sculpt are made with a toothpick.
