Renewed passion














Jewelry and beads have been a part of my creativeness for as long as I can remember.  I have always been crafty.  I don’t know if it started with macaroni noodle bead necklaces or the hemp frienship bracelets we made for hours on end in summer camp.  But where is started is not as important as the fact that it always makes me happy and happiness is important. 

 I have had quite a few requests lately for my jewelry pieces.  Fashion trends change and this keeps me on my toes.  I love recycling junking and old things in general.  I think it is cool that recycling is fasionable now.  This piece uses and electric copper coupling as the focal piece for the beads.  Turning uncommon goods into beautiful pieces is somthing else I like to do.  I think it runs in my family.  Maybe I will share little bits about how they have inspired me and what they have taught me in little bits.  Sharing personal stuff is not something I do much.
