About the ArtistONCE UPON A TIME I thought bold, chunky and distinctive jewelry was out of my league, being petite. Today I design and wear Artisan, Unique and Fun jewelry dancing with life. Nature provides beautiful color and texture which I love and enjoy wearing in all its glory. I have been making jewelry for the past 7 years now. My style changes a lot, just like my hair styles. I am always looking down the road and am easily influenced to try something new. I accept change very well in most things. I cannot boast collage degrees, certificates or years of study abroad. I am a simple Swedish girl with a gift for color, creativity and a zest to live life. My family came to New Mexico 23 years ago and we made Placitas our home. We are extreme gardeners with a wide variety of fruit trees, black berries, garlic, regular garden vegetables and much, much more. We built our home and it took us 5 years. We built it with a water harvesting system. I home schooled our children through the rough mid school years and they are now college degree holders with exceptional jobs. My other interests are Tole painting, wire wrapping, crafting galore, and making pasta, baking, and sewing. I make elegant blossoms from hand cut Chiffon and Satin and embellish everything from Bridal to Baby. You are welcome to visit my shop at blossomsbychristy.etsy.com.
