Who are you? Rose of Jane Elizabeth’s.
Please tell us a bit about yourself.
I am Rosemary Jordan and I am from the
Area. My shop on Etsy is Jane Elizabeth’s, and the name is derived from my mother Jane, who along with my father passed away when I was eleven. San Francisco Bay was my grandmother. I tend to vacillate occupations from being a freelance education teacher, presently teaching the “No Child Left Behind” program, and a photographer. Both occupations sort of feed each other. Teaching children helps me to keep my focus clear on what is “good” and “hopeful” about life, and I try to take that energy and capture it with my camera. The greatest compliment I can receive is that a viewer found something positive and comforting in my work. Elizabeth
How did you learn about Etsy Project Embrace?
The topic of Etsy came up at one of the art co-ops that I belong to.
What is your favorite item in your shop at the moment?
I honestly have to say two are pretty much tied. “Misty Day” for the calming effect of the green rolling hills this time of year, and “Perspectives”. They are both recent.
I have an antique water fountain of a woman holding a vase over her shoulder, and the water trickles out. It is in my backyard.
What is your favorite handmade possession?
Hands down that would go to the “Angel” petite-point that a dear friend worked on for 3 months for me and had it framed. It is in my living room.
What do you collect?
What I don’t collect is probably easier………. So many things, so little time…….. but, now I would say that my best things are good memories.
Where would you like to be and what do you hope to be doing ten years from now?
On rural acreage surrounded by my 5 brother and sisters, our families, and my friends. If I win a huge lottery I am going to build cabins for us all.
