Jewellery Therapy

I’ve been making jewellery for a while now and have found that tapping into my creative side has allowed me to cope in new ways. It is my daily escape from the realities of living with Cystic Fibrosis.
A few weekends ago I had the opportunity to share a table with my Dad at the Sointula Winterfest craft fair. I sold my jewellery and my dad sold his amazing woodwork. We called ourselves the “Dad and Daughter Crafts” table and had a great time getting to know the locals and learning the ins and outs of selling at a craft fair. 
I’ve always known that Sointula is a special community as some of my extended family has lived there all my life. I grew up visiting Sointula often and have fond memories getting into mischief with cousins at past Winterfests. Being able to be a part of the craft fair this year was incredible and something I truly enjoyed. A special thanks to my cousin Carmen for allowing my Dad and I to have a table!
I’m grateful I’ve found something to keep my hands busy while doing physiotherapy and inhaled meds and have really loved the process of creating.
Thank you so much to those who have supported me throughout this venture and a huge thank you to those who have purchased my jewellery. You are the ones who allow me to escape my daily realities.
