I have been a crafter forever. I remember adding an embroidered killer whale to a report I was doing on killer whales in the 6th grade. It is my therapy, my obsession, ingrained in WHO I AM. I am blessed to live in an area of the country where paper birch trees are native and abundant. I was looking at the bark one day and racking my brain to figure out what to do with it, because it is so beautiful. After playing around with it a bit, I realized it would lend itself well to jewelry. I made a few pieces and found that people loved the simple natural look. I hope you are blessed by my work.
