Length - 26 inches
"I started the Sparklelily journey in April 2017 by entering the Saanich Peninula Arts & Crafts Society’s Art Show in Sidney, BC. I was uncertain, to put it mildly, that what I was doing would ever be more than an enjoyable hobby, but a couple of judge’s awards gave me encouragement and the 2018 show was the very successful anniversary of a rewarding year of learning and growing.
Since then the business has grown into something quite a bit more than a pipe dream. I’ve learned a great deal about making jewelry of course, partly by experimentation and also with, as I like to call it, the University of YouTube. I’ve also learned a lot about what’s possible when you add relentless determination and discipline to a bit of talent. I take great pleasure in doing custom work, especially when I take an order saying “No, I don’t know how to do that, but I’ll figure it out.”
