Personal

Creativity has always been in my life, both personally and professionally. Commercial interior designing was my first job out of school. And although I have, long since then, traded in my swatches and ruler to be a high school English teacher, I have continued to turn to Art’s various forms of expression to keep myself balanced, joyful and intrigued.
My first recollection of crafting is me as a preschooler, sitting at my aunt Molly’s kitchen table, turning an empty, scotch tape dispenser into a stage coach. Since then, I have constructed all sorts of displays (both miniature and window), painted (both acrylic and water) and sculpted (both clay and soft). But none of these expressions have excited me the way designing free-spirited and organic Boho jewelry has. These days I get up early in the morning and stay up late at night musing over beads, ribbons and leather in the hopes that something sublime will come from the simple.

    Love the balances of light vs. dark, primitive vs. refined and sweet vs. goth. Fantastic combinations. Love this!

    Ditto Batticat … right into my favorites! Actually, ditto everyone. Love it. Love it. Love it!

    Thank you so much for sharing this tute and all of the extra helpful hints. I’ve been wanting to try etching … even have all the supplies … just can’t seem to get past the fear of the unknown. This definitely helps clear up some of the unknowns! Eve

    This is so eye-catching! Love the color combination and variety. I can never seem to pull off “random”. Mine always ends up looking “just a mess”, but yours looks so natural… like nature planned it that way. Glad to hear you’re back feeling better. That particular cold hit a lot of folks really hard.
