Avalon Arts Shop
Formerly from New York State, I moved to Conway, South Carolina in 2016 after retiring as a Registered Nurse of 50 years and 25 of those as a Certified Nurse-Midwife. Having much time on my hands has inspired me to express myself through the arts. I have been crafting for over 60 years. It all started when my mother enrolled me into 4H at age 8. I learned how to sew and create small crafts and I have been crafting ever since.
In 2004 I began creating beaded and silver jewelry. I started selling my jewelry at local craft fairs and Vendor shops, as well as in-home shows and had a successful following. I branched out and began creating Fine Silver jewelry and added Copper Jewelry as well. Although I have created my own line called “This Heart Matters”, I am particularly partial to re-creating nature’s gifts. Through the use of precious metal clay, I create leaves for my collection called “Please Don’t Leave Me”. I am also inspired to create personalized PMC designs and various unique designs in Pure Silver. Look for other crafts as well, such as my signature Purses.
