I have been catapulted back into my beloved activity-- jewelry-making-to bring-joy-to-others--after a long absence by a very kind and encouraging group of friends.
It's been close to 2 years where I haven't been creating as I used to, partly because of my husband's and my health issues (all resolved now, thankfully). Our path to regaining our health has lead me in an entirely new direction, one of learning and implementing what I've learned. To make a long story short, we've been following a Plant Based Whole Food (Vegan) way of eating that resolved not only all our health problems but opened up a whole new way of looking at life and all living beings. It was a joy to get excited about cooking again and the immense amount of recipes and fabulous foods available to us. We are regaining a connection to all living beings and things in the process and want to be a part of preserving and not destroying them, protecting them and not harming them.
Along the way, dear friends encouraged me to think about combing this new way of feeling about everything with my jewelry, or, expressing it in my art. A whole new excitement about creating was born! I am so ready to dive into my art-making now and see what I come up with, or rather, what comes out of me! I hope you will enjoy it too.
