Some of my other Talents


I decided to show some of the other things I love to do...The Teddy bear is a 6inch high made out of rayon that is as soft as a chinchilla....his friend was a already made stuffed elephant ....He was made for a swap a few years ago.  I created all of my own patterns and taught how to make them to people for about 5 years.
I can make bears from 1 1/2 inches tall ....to 36 inches tall and love making them .  Unfortunately I live in a area that does not understand them or appreciate them.  I used to work two huge Teddy Bear Shows up in maryland every year and had a blast.  

The Seaglass or Beach glass Jewelry has a fondness for my heart....I liken seaglass to life ...it goes into the ocean broken and damaged considered trash by everyone and then one day many hours and years later it has been smoothed and rounded  by it rough and tumble travels in the ocean.  It washes up on the beach and someone blessed with finding it will love and appreciate it ...because it is a rare find and maybe just maybe it will be made into a piece of jewelry that will honor its hard times and travels ....and it has gone from trash to respect.

This is why when people would bring me their treasures I would never drill a hole in it only wire wrap them
...I would do pendants or mermaids from it ...and even made brooches with seaglass ...never doing anything different to the seaglass ...no  glue..   So I learned to work with what I was given.  It is a great thing.

Your sea glass creations look like little packets of sea glass potpourri all wrapped up. Very appealing and sweet. I appreciate your introspective view on sea glass. I feel much the same way. Fair Winds and Calm Seas, Deborah Leon www.mermaidspurseseaglass.com

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
