SeaShellsbySeaShore welcomes our first featured artist!

We are glad to announce Felisa!  She is a hard working mother of two that designs gorgeous Sea Inspired Jewelry on Etsy.

A little about Felisa...

I'm married and I'm a mother to two young boys. Being a "Mommy" is most rewarding! During my personal time, I enjoy making jewelry, reading books, and baking.
This year I opened up my online shop at www.DesignsByFelisa.Etsy.com where you can find my coastal and nature inspired jewelry and at times I list designed compact mirrors. I also accept orders via e-mail -CraftsByFelisa@gmail.com, or on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Designs-Crafts-by-Felisa/123164681093875

It brings me complete joy when I can make another person happy. For example, when a stranger, friend, or family member appreciates my work, is completely satisfied with their order, and refers my shop to others. I also love it when my children tell me "ooh" or enjoys looking at my final piece.

I've always been a creative person by heart but when I had children, my devotion and time was theirs. Early last year when my mother passed away, it was a difficult time for me; however, I found my craftsmanship extremely therapeutic. It was as if I rekindled my relationship with my creative side. Since then, I've dedicated more personal time to enjoy crafting and creating beautiful coastal and nature inspired jewelry.

Currently, Etsy is one of my favorite websites - not only because I have an online shop there, but also the fact that Etsy has other wonderful and talented artist & crafters.  I love using sea shells, polymer clay, resin, acrylic paint, and river rocks as part of my materials. I enjoy reading jewelry books and I admire Matthew H. James - a Mixed Media Artist based in New York. 

I reside in Mountain House of California. It's approximately 2 hours away from the Pacific Ocean. I enjoy where I live because it's peaceful and it's not that far of a drive to the Bay Area. Special moments with my husband and family take place along the coastal line.

Some of my short term goals are to familiarize myself with local craft events, and to meet other jewelry makers in my area. This will lead into my long term goals, which is to participate in local craft shows and festivals; encourage young adults to explore their creative side, and to volunteer my time hosting river rock painting sessions and jewelry making classes at a geriatrics facility.  
 I am a spiritual person and I believe in God.

~Thanks for sharing Felisa!  We wish you an exciting, and successful year ahead!
