Blog Giveaway from Etsy Featured Seller: waterbucks.etsy.com

Meet waterbucks.etsy.com, a truly talented jeweler!

What Makes you Tick?
People; cultural diversity, rituals, traditions, and romantic sentimentalism. I dig history and how we hold on to it through little insignificant bobbles and scraps of paper. And I'm fascinated by how we can turn something so simple into something so important simply by attaching our emotions to it.

How did you get interested in what you create?
Rocks are amazing. Look at any gemstone and consider were it came from... From the dirt! From in the ground right under our feet! Who hasn't ever bent down to pocket a stone from the beach or mountain top? Throughout history rulers and religious leaders have used stones based on their metaphysical properties, shamans prescribed them for healing, warriors attached them to shields for protection and women wore them for fertility... There is a lot of energy in stones and I enjoy working with them.

What is the last book you read?
All About Lulu written by Jonathan Evison. It's a wonderful weekend read full of humor and coming of age philosophy. The author is a talented local writer. But I must admit that most of my reading these days are of blogs. I'm a bit of a blog addict. haahahahha.

If we looked in your refrigerator right now, what would we see?
Sprouted red quinoa salad from the co-op with pear and macadamia nuts. Yum! I'm working out more lately and as a vegetarian have to be creative in getting extra protein. All sprouts are loaded with protein. I have sprouts coming out my ears these days. lol

What is your favorite quote?
Lately there's been a lot of talk about change and whether on a grand scale or just on my personal bathroom scale this quote keeps coming to the front of my mind to remind me of my responsibility in the process....
"Things do not change; we change." Henry David Thoreau

Sandstone Creation nad Labradorite Touch for me, please!

joannaonthelake said...

Wow! Waterbucks has some gorgeous items! I love so many of the wonderful unique designs and I can clearly see how the jewelry is impeccably made! My favorite items are the Bohemian Desert Agate Pendant, the colors are spectacular and remind me of a sunset. I also really love the Drusy Moss Heart Necklace. I love all the intricate coil work that went into making this showstopper piece! And, I have to say, my very favorite necklace is the Lapis'n'Gold Necklace. I just love the cobalt blue color of the Lalis against the rich gold. It is a very regal look with a hint of looking like a beautiful India princess should be wearing it! Thank you so much for the opportunity to enter.
