A Bend In The Road

A bend in the road
is not the end of the road.
There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle,
and the other is as though everything
is a miracle.

A laugh is a smile
that bursts ! :)

Stop back often, because this is a work in progress folks!
You've reached a place where you can view things created by me. I like to use a lot of old stuff, I like to call it re-purposed, cause it sounds cooler, don't you think? I scour heaps looking for old wool sweaters, get excited when someone offers me old copper pipes or wire, and when old silverware comes my way visions begin to dance in my head. :) Lately I have had dreams of "hunting" on rockpiles for old glass, and other long ago forgotten things. (Thanks Bille!)
You will also find sayings and quotes here, I have been collecting them for years and started stamping some of the shorter ones on to things I create. But the world is just full of awesome quotes and sayings so, I just gotta share em! :)
You won't find prices on individual pieces here, in fact many of these pieces are no longer in my possesion, but rather examples of what I do. I can create something similar but no two will ever be the same, that's the beauty of handmade. I can tell you that my price range is $25-$45, contact me to work out the details of what you are interested in, as well as individual price.
Have a look around, enjoy yourself! If you see something that interests you or if you have an idea for something new, contact me. I would love to create something for you! My intent is to make someone who wears something I created, smile ~ because when that happens it fills a hole in me and makes me whole! Thanks for stopping by~ Chris
Ten cents worth~ ten pennies were used to create this piece, the pennies were smashed and domed and turquoise accents added. It has a southwest feel and is just a fun piece to wear! :)
Always tell someone how you feel, because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regrets can last for a lifetime.
that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we ARE,
but we are responsible for who we BECOME
As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't suppose to let us down probably will. You'll have your heart broken, probably more than once, and it's harder everytime. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when someone broke yours. You'll fight with your best friend and maybe even fall in love with them. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing by too fast and you'll eventually lose someone close to you. So take too many pictures, laugh till your belly hurts, and love like you have never been hurt because every 60 seconds you spend angry or upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back!
