Thank You!

This Small Business Saturday, I just wanted to take a moment to THANK YOU all for supporting my small business. I’m an artist at heart and being able to create daily is a dream come true.

I’ve heard so many wonderful stories about how my jewelry/message has impacted them, touched others, and just is a positive message that we all need to hear. It’s been an amazing year and I’m just so thankful that many of you have taken the time to let me know or come to my events to chat!

I also wanted to feature many of the small businesses that do carry my work – I’m so honored to have my work available nationwide. Please, if you are looking for gifts, and you’re local to them, stop by and check them out!
