There are many different ways to make these, I have seen 5 gallon buckets, gallon milk jugs, heavy duty plastic bags and all sorts of random things. I didn't really care to hang any of those on my back patio, even though they would have cost me nothing to make. I made a cute hanging basket that looks nice & produces food.
Sorry to cut short at the end, Honey Nut has a 103 fever & was getting upset because she couldn't figure out how to unlock the screen door & escape. I came so close to getting it done without interruption, but what is life in The Nut House without interruption, right?!
Owain is my Heart Hero. He has a Complex Congenital Heart Defect. Born with a Single Ventricle, he had 3 Open Heart Surgeries by the time he was 3, and a Pacemaker implanted when he was 4. He is 1 in 110 impacted by CHD, is a Warrior, and is my Hero.
All of my designs are handmade originals. I use Semi-precious Stones, Sterling Silver, Bali beads, Freshwater Pearls, Swarovski Crystals, Lampworked Glass, Fused Glass, Czech Glass, Amber and anything else I can think of to create jewelry that inspires joy. I get my design ideas from the Earth itself, from the hills that surround my home to the sunset that ends my day, there is color and inspiration in every moment. The biggest inspiration of all though is My Tribe that I share my life with.
Tribe Jewelry is nestled in the Finger Lakes of NYS and was founded in 2000 in anticipation of my first son in 2001. It is a way for me to add extra income to support my family, while being creative at the same time. Not only is my jewelry a way for me to help support my family as a single mother, it is an amazing way to decompress after crazy days at work & with the kids! In the past I have sold my jewelry at Charlottesville, VA City Market, and at a number of Arts & Crafts festivals throughout Central VA. In 2008 I won 2nd Place for Best in Show at Apple Days Fall Festival in Waynesboro, Virginia. The Nut House relocated to NYS in 2015, and at this time I mostly sell online.
There is nothing wrong with a little crazy in your day. I have what at one time I would have considered to be a big family, 5 kids. They are My Tribe. I am a single, working mom, loving my kids and doing my best to give them a good life.
