She's from a bit North of there, in a cute little small town called Stouffville. I can only think of Stouffer's Mac and Cheese...Dunno why...maybe because it sounds like a comforting place to be creative.
Well whatcha know: Stouffville was named after a guy named Stouffer and it was used for the filming of a 97 movie. Nice claim to fame.
She's a gal after my own heart...she works in gemstones...drool. She wire-wraps, knits, crochets and sews too. She also loves to garden and read.
Back to her shop...before I get completely off on a tangent.
This gorgeous piece is from her Bead Crochet section. I just can't describe it.
It's like she wove butterflies and tropical fish into a piece of art!
I wouldn't even ATTEMPT that in my wildest and most coordinated dreams.
This wonderful piece is in her Valentine's section:
I think it would be lovely for Mother's Day too. Aventurine is SUCH a wonderful stone. I've seen it myself in Red and Blue and the usual Green and they're all pretty.
Utoh...I found my favourite colour combination!!!
Here's what she said about it:
"I was inspired by the forecast of orange being the Color of the Year 2012, and knowing that there are many individuals who think they cannot wear this color, I softened the design by combining the lighter orange with green and blue. Anyone can wear this jewelry set. I am very pleased with the final result and think it is beautiful."I happen to agree absolutely!
Another of my favourite stones is Obsidian and she has a set of Rainbow in her shop too.
This one is really interesting also with the different textures and the colours of the Greek Flag...I would be touching it all day.
And she's got Snowflake Obsidian earrings...drool...
Now I'm in trouble...hehe
Oh jeeze, something else I love: Copper Goldstone. What a pretty bracelet!
Anyone wanna pass me a bib, plznthnx?
