This is a small, heavy, silver frame with a blue, soft, material background.  The frame is decorated with a cute silver squirrel and a silver “dandelion” flower.  I am a squirrel lover and rehabber so this one is special to me and was so fun to make.  This is an adorable frame that would be a wonderful gift for any animal lover, squirrel lover or squirrel rehabber!  This would also be cute in a child’s room, nursery or garden room.   This is a  5 x 5” desk top frame that could have a wall hanger easily added.  

Hi!  My name is Katie.  I am a 7th grade teacher and a mom of two adult boys.  I have rescue dogs and also rehab gray and flying squirrels!  I started making these as a result of a Christmas tradition in my family.  One of our Christmas traditions in my family is to choose a name of someone to buy something for and then choose a name to make something for.  We started this tradition over 25 years ago!  Last year I had my sisters name to make something for.  I had a box of our Noni’s jewelry in my attic.  Many of the pieces were broken or missing a mate.  When we went out to dinner one night I saw a picture on a wall of a tree made of buttons.  I decided to try something like that with our Noni’s jewelry.  I made a tree inside a frame and loved making it and the way it turned out.  Things just went from there and I started making more!  I like to be creative and think outside of the norm and like to use different things like skulls and porcelain masks.  I am a person who wears minimal jewelry- wedding band, diamond stud earrings and rarely anything else, But, I love and appreciate beautiful jewelry.  When I see something I want to buy my husband will comment that I won’t wear it.  Doing this, creating these pieces of art, have allowed me to take those beautiful pieces I see and transform them into something else beautiful so that jewelry can be appreciated in a different way.  I have also enjoyed trying new things like decoupage bottles and jars and different mediums and designs.  I have also made some custom pieces for people using their jewelry, coins and other items.  My business name is named after one of my rescue dogs (pictured in my profile picture).  I originally was going to name it “My Noni’s Jewelry” but then my sister would have known what her gift was!!  I hope you enjoy my pieces and please feel free to ask any questions!
