I’m behind my personal goal for blogging but really who cares. Who am I really doing this for? My Mom and I. So, in honor of Mother’s Day, I’m making a special post just for Mom.
Mom passed the sewing reins on to me, though I still get her to make the occasional item for her grandkids, but what is she doing to keep the creative juices flowing? Making jewelry! I don’t really remember what got her interested in beading (sorry, Mom) but she’s been at it for at least a decade now. Early on, I was roped in as the design consultant (yeah, art degree) and I will still give her a push in a certain direction every now and then but this is really her thing. Recently, a necklace popped up in my pinterest feed but the image led nowhere and the google image search just brought me back to pinterest. A few ebay and etsy purchases later, I had the supplies and she made me this amazing statement necklace.
Here are a few others she’s made on demand:
You can find more of her jewelry in her etsy shop: www.mandkdesigns.etsy.com. If you like something you’ve seen here she’ll take custom orders too.
