Featured Seller: Upon The Waters Jewelry 7/5/07

Kristin Larson started selling her jewelry after she became addicted to making it. A co-worker taught her how to make earrings, and she was immediately hooked. Her husband was always been interested in doing a small business, and it seemed like a good way to learn some of the ropes.

Kristin believes that what makes a persons crafts uniques is simply the personality that goes into them. Her work is inspired by many aspects of her personality – her love of music, literature, nature, and scripture. Her primary inspiration is nature surrounding the Lake Superior region, where she grew up and stills feel a profound connection to. Kristin’s business name Upon The Waters Jewelry even comes from her true love for Minnesota and it’s lakes.

As a teacher by day, Kristin enjoys coming home to craft because it gives her the chance to see the fruits of her labor. She finds so much satisfaction in finishing a beautiful piece of jewelry.... it’s also the perfect way to relieve stress after a long day of teaching 6th through 8th graders and jokes that “beads don’t talk back”.

You can purchase your own special piece of jewelry from Kristin in her etsy shop. Also don't forget to stop by her blog to say hi :D
