meet the maker

My paternal grandmother taught me to sew.  She always said, “Don’t always follow the sewing rules — make it your own.”  When she died last October I started sewing again and then decided to expand into other areas.

I have always loved art and creating things, and so this is the perfect job for me.  I have two teenage sons: Tre’ and Justice.  When my boys were little, I would make homemade Christmas ornaments with them.  This is what gave me the idea to make the jewelry.

I have been married to my husband Jeremy for 17 years, and I also have six miniature schnauzers who keep me busy.  When I am in “create mode” I love to listen to Jack Johnson, Matt Costa, Nora Jones and Coldplay.  Their music truly inspires me, and I could not work without it!

My plans for the future are to keep expanding and creating new and unusual things.  God has gifted me with the ability to think outside the box, and I hope you enjoy what you see!
