Hi my name is Katie and I am 29 and live in lovely St. Louis, MO. I started maiing jewelry a year ago in April. My grandma was very ill and it was the first time I had to deal with this as an adult and it was awful for me. We were very very close. I was there 2 days before she passed away and had to spoon feed her and she was so weak she could only touch my hand when she wanted more, she couldn't even speak. She went from moving her fridge by herself every week to clean underneath it just in case to this. She passed a few days later and I could not get that final image out of my head. So I went to the craft store and thought I would give this a try and I love it. It took my mind off of the last time I saw her and helped through the worst times and I feel like her memory is living on through the beautiful pieces I make.
