Welcome and why I make jewelry

Welcome to my blog....
I was told it would be a good way to show the world what I've been creating for the last 6 months.
I started with a few necklaces back in February but the designing really took off after April.
In April of this year, my husband was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. Making these necklaces has been a great comfort for me as it allows me to use my hands and be creative in a calm way. Sitting and beading (as Eric refers to it) is very therapeutic for me and I am grateful to have an outlet like this!
I hope you enjoy the designs. I make things to order as well so if you see some things you like, but not exactly how you like them, I'm happy to oblige!

Update - July 2012
Sadly, my husbnd Eric passed away on April 20 of this year - one year and a day after his surgery.
I will always be grateful for the time I had with him even though it was cut very short.
He was an inspiration to the world in how he dealt with his disease throughout his journey.  He will be sorely missed by many people.
