Get to know the artist, Rachel Watson:
I’m a California girl living in Oklahoma with my sweet husband, Dan. I love reading, writing, painting, people-watching, singing, eating, and creating things. Creating is how I unwind. I teach high school kids all day and grade papers all evening. Getting out my beads, wire and tools is my reward at the end of the day. A couple years ago I started making my own jewelry for myself and my friends. When enough people approached me about buying it (one day I sold the necklace off my neck!), I decided to start a little online store. It has been such a blessing to create things that people enjoy and to be able to afford my crafting habit. It’s also been a way for me to raise support for my friends who are adopting or are doing missions work overseas. I use whatever I can find to make jewelry: retro pins, dictionaries, magazines, lace, buttons, charms, etc. Every sale I make is exciting to me, and allows me to keep on creating! The most important thing about me, and the reason I have joy and hope no matter what happens, can be summed up in the words of this well-known hymn:
“I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind, but now I see.” (Rom. 5:8). Crafting is my hobby, but Jesus in my everything.
