To honor the women who came before me.

To honor the women in my lineage.

To honor my grandmothers and my mother.

To pave a path for my daughter.

To walk down a path of healing.

To create beauty when the eyes are begging to fall upon beautiful things.

To create adornment.

To create from the contents of my heart.

To play with shape, form, color.

To play with the gems of the earth.

To arrange.

To offer.

To dance with my intuition.

To access flow.

To make something that wasn’t there before.

To be in conversation with my soul.

A few of the reasons of why I make.
