We live in a little cottage in the woods. Our house is adorned with lots of gingerbread trim and I call it Hansel and Gretel. It’s very fairytale-like.
I love this question. I never set out to be a jewelry designer. I did decide in high school that I would be a buyer for a major department store. I had my eye on Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, but close to home was Parisian. Yes, the department store of the South. It was the bomb.com growing up and practically in my backyard. So, I went to school and studied Marketing and Fashion Merchandising, did an internship with Parisian one summer and they offered me a job upon graduation. It was a dream come true!!
Where are you on the 2nd weekend of each month? If you are within driving distance, you should be at Scott’s Antique Market in Atlanta! I usually make it from Birmingham 4 or 5 times a year. I recruited a friend to go with me over the weekend and we found a few treasures!
It’s been in the works since May 4, 2013. The Southern Makers team has been meeting once a month, at least, to create another one of a kind event to celebrate the Southern Makers of Alabama. We’ve traveled to Nashville and Huntsville to research and promote what we know as the best of Alabama. We are so proud of this event and look forward to continuing the promotion of the South and those who make it a genuine place to live.
It seems simple to me, but it doesn’t matter what I’m doing, I’m noticing all the details. It may be the texture of the plaster, the arch of a window, or the pattern in the wood. I’ve always been that way and am a big advocate of texture in all aspects of my life. I love texture in the clothes I wear, the home I live in, and the jewelry I make.
Welcome to my home, aka Hansel and Gretel! This isn't my front door, but it's Mr. Snowman and he wants to welcome you to our home that is filled with character all year long!
