MAKING Jewelry


My father, my 5 year old daughter, and I worked on some jewelry together this weekend. Now that I have my own family I do not get to spend as much time with my dad as I would like.


Both of my parents have always been creative and love to learn how to make new things, so it is very important to me to teach this life skill to my children as well.


I am just learning the ropes, but my dad is always encouraging and patient. He trusts my artistic instinct and teaches me to do the same. Above all he always reminds me that creating is about the joy of the experience and learning what to do better the next time.


(These earrings are handmade from vintage pocket watch gears. You can check out our Etsy shop here if you would like to see more.)
