Introducing.... Hi, my name is Liz and I live in Dunedin, Florida. The name of my shop is Far Field Designs. When I was a child, I used to wander around the fields and woods of Ohio, so I named my shop after a poem called Far Field by Theodore Roethke that reminds me of those days. I sell handmade jewelry; mainly necklaces.
I learned about EPE by looking through the list of teams on Etsy. My father has stage 4 lymphoma, so I'm painfully aware of the effect that cancer has on people and families.
My favorite creation is my silver cactus skeleton necklace. I found a dried cactus part laying on the ground with all of these cool crevices, so I just had to see it captured in pmc. It took me forever to paint each layer of silver paste in each crevice, and then file each nook and cranny after I fired it. It's got a very interesting look, and it's definitely one of a kind. My other necklaces are are very varied. Some are made from charms, druzy geodes, and bronze. I usually have a lot of design ideas racing through my head, so it's hard to decide on what to make next.
Are pets possessions? My favorite possessions are my cats; who I just love! I don't have a blog or URL. I haven't figured out what to blog about yet. I collect vintage charms and findings for jewelry making. I find them at flea markets and on ebay. They're like treasures to me.
In ten years I'd like to be living with my husband in the mountains somewhere, close to nature. Hopefully, I'll still be creating jewelry and taking long walks in the woods and fields. I'll probably be on the lookout for interesting textures and shapes in nature.
