Groovy Accents

I am an artistic woman who recently lost her mother to the repercussions of many years of smoking. While on a long trek to scatter her ashes at the Grand Canyon, I stopped at my Dad's house in Show Low, Arizona for an overdue week-long visit. While we reconnected, he took me to a neat music store where I found some really cool guitar picks. I bought them thinking, "I'll make something with these one day." Indeed, as soon as we got back to his house, I pulled out my jewelry making gear and created some very cool,one of a kind earrings. Coincidentally, a talented old friend I hadn't heard from in a year or so emailed me a few weeks before I started on Mom's last journey. Ronda Dale (rondadale.com) is a fabulous singer and musician in Maine and it occurred to me she would probably dig earrings made from those groovy picks. She loved them and Groovy Accents was born!
