I have recently been trying to understand the path that brought me to where I am today. I don't know about you, but I definitely didn't start out wanting to design jewelry! Has your life brought you to an unexpected place as well?
When I first graduated from college, I worked as a nurse. I have always loved to take care of others and to be nurturing. THEN, I went back to school and became a physical therapist assistant. Again, I loved being able to work with people and make them feel better in some capacity.
Yet, here I am today making sea glass and semi-precious stone jewelry! Quite a different place to be. When I think about it though, I have always found interacting with nature and being outside to be very healing and calming. After I had major surgery about five years ago, I found it to be very cathartic to walk the beach and listen to the ocean, and of course, to look for sea glass!
It seemed like a natural progression from finding these gifts from Nature to creating something with them. Now, as I design jewelry with the sea glass and stones I feel at peace...I want to make YOU feel nurtured by designing a piece of jewelry that makes you feel and look beautiful and reminds you of Nature and its special gifts.
