Just for you, Mom

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.

Three Strand White turquoise with Turkish hammered gold accents.  Amazing!

Here are a few others she’s made on demand:

Found this in a magazine in orange for $500!  Mom made it in pink quartz with orange crystal accents.  One of a kind.

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.
