Life is short...buy the jewelry! Or in my case, learn how to make it yourself...
About The Artist
The Designer, Maker & Everything Else...
Hi, I'm Erin! I'm the one-woman-show behind The Blue Daisy & Co.
I have always been drawn to jewelry for as long as I can remember...I could not and still cannot walk by any sort of jewelry display without stopping to take a peek. Whenever my mom and I would go shopping, she always knew to look for me wherever the jewelry is. So, being the creatively driven DIY gal that I am, one day it occurred to me, after spotting a fabulous display of beads at the local craft store, that I could design and make my own unique jewelry rather than buying what everybody else had. What first started out as a personal craft project has, at the urging of family and friends, and an occasional stranger, turned into what you see on these pages.
I am constantly inspired by the world around me and find creative enjoyment in a variety of artful mediums. The thing I love about creating jewelry though is that it's wearable art. It can transform not only your outfit but your mood as well. Whether it's an eye-catching statement piece or something classic like delicate pearls, the jewelry you wear can speak volumes without you even saying a word. Since I’m not independently wealthy (although I’m still praying for that big lottery win) and there are bills to be paid, my day-time job is that of mild-mannered elementary school music teacher. While I love my kiddos and the rewards I get seeing them succeed in creating music, it is a noisy and sometimes chaotic environment. Designing and making jewelry is my blissful and creative escape from the daily grind of squeaky recorder playing and 2nd graders with no rhythm.
