Meet Rachel Kitterman. She is a self-proclaimed art addict. Her primary passion is fabric and she has been making art quilts and dolls for over a decade now. She also loves paper, altered art, mixed-media, knitting, crocheting, jewelry, artist books, photography...pretty much, if it will hold still, she'll make art out of it.
In her shop, you will find an ecclectic sampling of all the creative things she loves to make.
She also wears many other hats (maybe even the one shown below--I would). Among other things, she is a sign language interpreter, an energy worker, a minister, a blogger, a wife and mother to two "wild and amazing little girls". All of these roles shape and change and inform her art.
I started making jewelry over 10 years ago during college when a family friend that is a jeweler taught me how to string pearls. After that I tried to teach myself everything I could about making beaded jewelry. I am self-taught, definitely not the "artsy" type. As you can probably tell, most of my jewelry is pretty classic in style. I earned my master's degree in Occupational Therapy, and I am able to incorporate crafts and beads into therapy at times with my patients.
I am a mother of two small children (13 months, and 2 1/2)that is enjoying staying at home with them while they are young. In doing so, I have been able to pick back up with my jewelry business that I love.
