Check Out This Sock Monkey and Read About a Jewelry Artist From My Neck of the Woods

divamonkey2.jpg I’m a day late posting this because I went home to suburban Detroit for my little sister’s surprise 30th b-day party yesterday. The handmade gifts were well received including the pink and orange Emmeline apron I made and this “Diva” sock monkey by Dulce.

Okay, so the point of this post is to invite you all to read this week’s craft column featuring Catherine Hodge, a talented jewelry artist who I met at Craft Club. She lives in suburban Grand Rapids like me, and – unlike me – is able to bead and twist metal into beautiful adornments. I invite you to read her story then check out her shops here and here. And as an added bonus, download Catherine’s tutorial for making a pendant clip necklace.
