I have to thank Grandmother for all my jewelry/artistic talents. She was an exceptional woman with exceptional talent in design and artistry.
I started my own craft journey in 2002, teaching myself decorative painting (tole painting). However, six years later, it became harder and harder to paint with the fine detail required as my "Tremors" (an inherited shaking disorder) began to worsen. I didn't want to give up my love of artistry and design, so I decided to follow a new path. I started out designing jewelry, selling it at shows and consignment shops.
In 2018 my husband and I made a huge life change and moved from California (where I had lived my whole life) to Oregon. In Oregon my life changed again, no longer could I do shows (my partner remained in California), so I designed a website, added beautifully crafted and unique crystal suncatchers to my inventory and here we are. So very happy and loving Oregon. GOD never gives us more than we can handle.
You can find my designs at creationswithheart.com, on Instagram and Facebook as well.
