Selling My Jewelry and Art at the Manteo Farmers Market on Roanoke Island , NC

Some of you know that I am a Art Quilter and some of you know I love bead work so I finally have time to work on both and enjoy creating beautiful necklaces that are easy to wear with my signature button and loop closure , fun color combinations, vintage buttons and best of all my high tech thread allows me to guarantee my jewelry will not break, but if it should, I will repair or replace it. 

I can create any theme necklace or bracelet, earrings , lanyards , rings ....Just ask if there is something special you desire.   You can see some of my current designs in the pictures below.

All of my jewelry in my antique suitcase I purchased from Antique Restorations (American Pickers) on our trip to Nashville in May.

Dragonfly necklaces , Seahorse and my bead woven fish necklace


So where have I been and what have I been doing?

I have been a very busy person, to start I finally moved back from Alexandria , Virginia to North Carolina ,,,,because my prayers were answered.  I have found the love of my life and I moved to be with him in May this year and we will celebrate our wedding December 21, 2016 , Winter Solstice at a beautiful restaurant in a little town called Belvidere that is a Victorian Mansion turned restaurant.

All the goodness that came with this blessing is I now live in a old farmhouse over a 100 years old on 6 acres of property that has over 90 North Carolina Wildflower species growing on it and my Sweet Bob is a Private Lands Biologist that specializes in helping people develop Pollinator plots.  We had the most amazing collection of butterflies and flying critters visit this summer.

So we live in the middle of farmland just north of Edenton, North Carolina.  It is beautiful and peaceful. 

I have a studio on the second floor of the farmhouse that is south facing with 4 big windows and tremendous views.

I am inspired to sit down and create my jewelry and my art which I have been selling at my favorite farmers market in Manteo, NC ,     I also have it in a quaint little artist cooperative gallery called Studio 32 in Sunbury , North Carolina just a few miles from our home.

I am working hard to build my business now that I have a awesome Studio and time to just sit and create my art, my bead woven necklaces , my art quilts , my fabric paintings and other creative endeavors ,    so keep checking back and if you need a special art or treasure I still love creating Custom Orders .  email me at Fairygodmotherarts1@gmail.com

My Studio is called "Through the Creating Glass" to honor my love of Alice In Wonderland

Why I create and who I am

My photo
Outer Banks, North Carolina, United States
Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
