More About Me as a Person/ Jewelry Designer

In the first of 2 pieces I will describe who I am, and in the second piece I will do my very best to describe my 'creative process'.

I am a native Kansan and have lived many places. After coming home to settle, I raised 3 beautiful daughters and was married for 23 years. Life changing events occured and I then settled in Lawrence, KS in Sept. 2007. Being here is a wonderful experience. All my girls are doing well... and they are healthy... and this is priceless.

I have always been a collector of jewelry and minerals and stones and findings and... well, lets just say, my jewelry studio, conveniently located in my home, is an Aladdin's cave of treasures.

Treasures that I am now finally translating into beautiful, one of a kind, artisan jewelry. This in turn led my path to ETSY, and here I am. Happily creating, happily blogging... happy that I am finally working on my dream...

I am reminded of a wonderful quote:
"It's never too late to be what you might have been" George Eliot

More... lol...
I live simply, peacefully, and empathetically
I love 'classic' ouch... Rock... esp. Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin
I was a Diet Coke fiend... but I am trying to kick the habit
I write poems and daydream a lot...

Being 46 now, I don't think I will ever break that habit... lol

I speak, think, and write poetically...
and I will close now and follow with more in the coming week...

Please take time to check out my shop, time permitting? The unique treasures there will surely capture your fancy... look for classic rock references... lol.

Peace and blessings,

Greetings and Welcome!!!

Those that dare to dream... dare to do...

I have been with the ETSY community now for 6 weeks...
It has always been a goal of mine to have my jewelry designs "reach the masses" lol, and now I am finally bringing this dream to realization.

Some may consider me a "late bloomer" but I believe that we are all destined to be what we are meant to be... Jewelry creations flow from me just as my poetry does. I am creative and unique and my pieces will always be 'one onlys'...

Based upon that simple and wonderful principle... my shop will offer unique and one of a kind pieces to someone that will know... that they will be the only one in the world that will have that piece. Original and fresh, unusual and unique findings, nothing that will have a 'mass produced' feel.

As I carve my way into this niche... please join me? I am at my best in my creative zone... my journey will be worth the trip, for it is, and was... always my destination.
Enjoy my shop.
Watch for future posts to include my writings as well...
Most of all, enjoy the unique and wonderful person that you are... just like me jewelry... there is only one... you.

Peace and blessings,
