she bought my "day of the dead, Frida shrine", originally uploaded by keeshagirl4. i was really excited about this because she has asked me "how much for your day of the dead shrine? and most people around here and no clue what it was! i made that after returning from Tucson last feb. i love tucson! very cultural and exciting. lots of color every where. mosaics about the city, murals painted on buildings, etc. and the saggaro (sp?) national forest was to die for! haven't been? then you gotta go!
Creating is my key to another time. It unlocks the gate to my secret garden; my refuge. It takes me to another era where things were simpler and I find the process soothing to my soul. Lemoncholy’s Studio began with my fondness for vintage items. Searching flea markets, I find items long forgotten, sometimes damaged, but still purposeful. They just need some love and attention. I want these found objects to tell a new story, have meaning and to be inspiring. I have a vision for them to begin again. Intuitively I combine elements in an enchanting way to provoke a narrative response that alludes to something we seek without knowing it. Often, it is a reminder of our childhood. My jewelry is about craftsmanship and virtue but not perfection. By removing perfectionism, I free my imagination to play and ultimately, this freedom results in whimsical pieces of grace and beauty. I am a grown up Navy brat and moved every 2 years of life. This education in life has well prepared for the journey i have chosen for myself. I am the mother of 2 boys, Tucker and Dillon. We live here at the jersey shore in our own little bohemian corner of the world.
