I started making jewelry because I wanted to learn something new. I had been working with my husband until he sold his businesss; and I wanted something of my own that where I could be creative. I also wanted something that I could take with me whether I was headed to Florida for the winter or returning to Pennsylvania. So it had to be pretty portable. I have to say for me anyway, it has become very addictive. I have taken some classes, I continue to read a lot and experiment with designs. With the help of my daughter attending several local craft and art shows and renting space at a consignment shop and trying to create our own website it has become a challenge.
This past weekend I was visiting with my old neighbor at her home in Michigan. September is very nice in the Grand Rapids area, warm days and cooler nights. It was refreshing to escape the humidity of SW Florida. There are sooooo many apple orchards in the area, and she chose one that she had not been too. So here are just a few pictures. No pumpkin patch or pumpkins. Enjoy!
