CHRISTINE HAS A STORY


Anyone looking at this photo knows the distinct and beautiful style of Christine Damm's beads, of Stories They Tell blog. Christine has a special story, and I encourage you to go visit her blog, let yourself listen, and be moved. Over the years, my jewelry and art have evolved to the point that I really question myself a lot of why I keep making things, and what can I do with them. I don't want it to be just about me, and a collection of things, but I always feel like it is. I never dreamed it possible that something that I could make, no matter how small, big, or whatever, could impact someone else beyond being a tangible thing. I think what Christine is doing is just that, going beyond the thing to the feeling, the idea, and like I told her, if this is the only thing I do this year, or try to, it will be enough. Thanks Christine.
