If you know me, you know that my name is Teresa, and I am the artist behind By Faith Jewelry and that I am so very blessed and privileged to create beautiful jewelry with the myriad of gems, pearls, rocks and precious metals that God has put on this planet.
What you may not know is that I have always been a maker. From my earliest memories I was crafting bread dough sculptures, plastic beaded necklaces, noodle art, collages, wall hangings, pin cushions, stuffed animals, clothes, shoes, hats, gifts and, well you get the idea! I never met a craft that I didn’t want to try to put my own spin on!
I came across this old photo the other day and realized that I am still that girl! The geeky girl you see is in her Happy Place on Christmas morning…hair still in curlers, her new stewardess hat and wings on, next to the spray painted, noodle covered Christmas tree, drawing on her new tracing light box.
The second picture is today, all grown up, still in my Happy Place, still creating, perhaps a bit less geeky?
Anyway, I thank God for then and now. And I look forward to the future He has for me and for By Faith Jewelry!
