"I just love creating things and making the world more beautiful. As far as jewelry goes, I love things that are sparkly, things that are unique/funky, and things that are personal and meaningful. I searched long and hard after my son was born for some kind of mother's jewelry or family jewelry that was stylish and modern but had a hard time finding things I liked. That's why when I came across the idea of the birds' nests and the "peas" they were so appealing to make. I love making things that are both a fashion statement and an expression of who the wearer is/what she loves. As far as the crafts and things I do on my blog, I'm always looking for things I can do with Noah and get him involved in, or things I can make for him like his pillow/blanket set and hobby horse. I am inspired by sharing my love of art and creativity with him and watching him do his own thing and get really excited about what he makes. In all of it, I love being able to use the talents God has given me to bless other people and make something meaningful for them. "
You'll find earrings, bracelets, pendants, and necklaces in her shop. I must say I'm envious of her talents with wire- wire does not cooperate with me and doesn't shape into beautiful things like it does for Amy.
