To help wash away those Monday blues, I’ve got another giveaway for you today! It’s pretty pair of earrings handmade by Deborah, a talented jewelry maker from Klamath Falls, Oregon.
A FEW WORDS WITH THE ARTIST
I’ve asked Deborah to tell us a little big about herself because I always love to get to know creative people. Here’s what she had to say:
I’ve been married for 20 years to the love of my life, with no children. All of my creative energies go into my many “hobbies”. Right now I am focused on sewing & jewellery making.
I’ve been making jewellery as a hobby since I was a little girl. I wear it and give it as gifts, but now I think I have gone beyond those limits. I love making all kinds of jewellery, but didn’t have an outlet for it. I love putting together all the different combinations of colors and textures. Each new combination just leads me to more new and different ones.
I have been sewing since I was a little girl also. My grandfather taught me about the love of beading and my grandmother & great-grandmother instilled a love of sewing in me. I have been making clothing since I was in high school; too long ago to talk about.
