Hi! I’m Tracy and I am the bracelet making girl behind this blog. Jewelry making has been a hobby, then a passion and some may say an obsession for the last 8 years. Bracelets are usually my favorite pieces to make – all kinds of bracelets! This bracelet obsession probably stems from the fact that I have a small wrist and when I buy a bracelet it hangs annoyingly low on the hand and I always have to shorten and rework it. Eventually, I gave up buying bracelets “over the counter” and just started making my own. I also love that I get to secretly admire my creations all day just by just gazing down at my wrist. That’s the beauty of a bracelet.
I do make earrings and necklaces and I aspire to make rings one day too. You will see them all here!
What do I attribute my creativity to? Well, my Mom is creative and very talented in different artistic mediums. She paints, draws, sculpts and even has dabbled in making jewelry. She was an art teacher, so growing up I was always exposed to all kinds of artistic activities. I am thankful that our kitchen table was always full of art projects! It helped give me the creative drive I have today.
After my second child was born, I left the corporate world to pursue my own creative interests full time. I am a wife, a mother of two great kids and I have your typical hectic family life. I have found over the years that other than quiet moments with my husband and kids (few and far between) and maybe after a good walk or yoga class, I am the most happy and relaxed when I am making bracelets and teaching and sharing my interest with others. I hope you gain useful information and some inspiration from this blog. I encourage questions, comments and useful criticism. Enjoy!
Photography Note: I use a Nikon D40x for most of my shots and I love to use natural light. For my videos I use a Kodak Zi8 HD camera.
