I made and sold a good amount of jewelry along this tour, and I just wanted to THANK all those family, friends, & fans over the last 2 months who have bought my baubles, helping to support me making music. It means so much…I just can’t tell you! Every little bit matters. Making jewelry started as a hobby (I worked at HeartBead in Arcata in college!). But it has now become a serious outlet, even addiction;) My favorite on-the-road jewelry making moment was being in a little motel in Cortez, Colorado, mid-Nov. when the first snow storm hit- and just cranking up the heat and gettin’ busy!
The most satisfying moment; making 3 jewelry pieces for Andrew Thornton, proceeds from which would go to help him with his new medical bills- and they sold! I didn’t have time to post them as an auction from my website, so I took them with me & vowed to send him whatever sold. They all sold! (& I matched the price of one given as a gift…).
What was different with these pieces from my usual, was the inspiration; Lorelei’s Michael’s challenges inspired me to shop at Michael’s for the first time. These are the result 😉 I used the brown photo beads, glass blooms, coral, and howlite. AND I started using copper instead of silver. Andrew you have a $150 check coming to you. Pls. write me w/ your address.
