Chelsea made me do this.
Buy My Sh*t
But For Real
I made my first necklace at the age of 6 - it was made of dandelions. I sold my first piece when I was 24 as I was walking around St. Louis in 1993. A complete stranger approached me and asked where I got my necklace. They bought it off my neck for twenty bucks. I can't think of a time in my life when I wasn't making jewelry.
I think of a friend, I make something and give it to them. Maybe once a year I will gather my wares and go to a craft fair. This is the first time I have actually done something like this. If I am going to be honest, I had to be dragged kicking and screaming. Only because my biggest fear is that something that I have loved doing my whole life, which has been a way to express affection to those closest to me, will become an obligation.
But Covid - she is a beast and has turned all our lives upside down. So I am going to try to take this labor of love and see if it can carry me through to when I can get back to my 24 year career taking care of Broadway's most beloved artists. Take a peek. Contact me and ask any question. I hope something here brings you or someone you love the joy that I felt making it.
