Thank you for your support during 2020! It was a super challenging year for everyone, and I am overwhelmed with gratitude for your kind words + orders through it all. And, as COVID has kept me from seeing you at markets since last March, your continued interest in my work is beyond appreciated! Thank you for your continued support and Happy New Year!
the colors of these purple aventurine beads remind us of the American Beautyberry (Callicarpa americana), a plant native to the warmer areas of the southeast.
Historically, the beautyberry was used medicinally by Native Americans 🌿
And the fruit is an important food source to wildlife, including over 40 species of songbirds! If you live in a warmer climate, please consider planting natives like the Beautyberry ~ the birds + other wildlife will appreciate it + you will love having this addition to the landscape 💜
