Over the last 8 months, it's safe to say that our lives have changed dramatically. Many businesses have closed and a large number of people have been staying home. I was one of the furloughed employees who was suddenly home, living off unemployment, and unsure what my future held. I finished off the spring classes with my then-kindergartner and tried to focus my energy on other things. Over the summer I gardened, cleaned the house, planted trees, donated unused household items and clothing, and tried to develop some sort of schedule.
Around July, I decided to channel my energy and creativity into something that I knew I enjoyed and that I could put out into the world. I began making #bracelets and #jewelry. I love the flexibility of a good stretch bracelet with #healing stones, beautiful glass beads, #crystals, and a complementary metal. Something about that mix appeals to me on many levels.
Starting with lava beads and #essentialoils, I was able to make the beauty of the bracelet functional with oils, helping people destress, find peace, and energize. The scent of the oils even stays throughout the day for a pleasant reminder of those good feelings.
I'm happy to have found this outlet and to be able to design and create all of these one of a kind pieces. I hope #JFOriginals provides the what you are looking for and can give you a few moments of happiness with the craziness of today's world.
