I just couldn't resist taking this picture yesterday. This is Suzie Q and she's a real "mama's girl". She's near me while I work, on my lap while watching TV and sleeps with me at night. She'll be just two years old May 20th of this year.
I learned something about making jewelry while in grade school. Our school had summer activities that took place on the school grounds. It wasn't until after several years of marriage, and our children were grown that I began creating jewelry in earnest. In 1991 while my husband was in the hospital for a short time he bought me a beaded War Bonnet to hang from my truck rear view mirror. He made the mistake of saying "I bet you could do this". What a Pandora's Box he opened! I began creating these and some Native American Style jewelry, accessories and wall hangings. Sold most of these items as well. I was hooked and the rest is history.
