Hello! My name is Maria and I am a stay-at-home mom. In 2001 my son was born and two years later my daughter followed! Even early on, while my kids were just toddlers, something told me that I would have a boatload of material to share with you in the years to come!!
The Willow and Bee blog reflects much of what I love most; family, photography, food, fitness, my homeschooling adventures, and making jewelry. I continue to find new things that I enjoy doing and many more that I would like to pursue!
Since I live in a 1920’s Craftsmen-style bungalow, home repair has become a way of life. I share my humble abode with my husband, two kids, a Yorkie and the most lovable Greyhound!
As of late, I am muddling through a Paleo menu and I recently had two of my original Willow and Bee designs sold at Von Maur.
Join me as I share the fun and quirky lessons of life as seen through my lens!
About Willow and Bee – Jewelry
Willow and Bee began as a quest to make lead-free jewelry pieces for my daughter and son. After years of selling my jewelry and rosaries locally, I decided to open my Etsy shop in March 2010.
Nature and experiences help develop the inspiration for the jewelry that I create. I design and create all of my jewelry by hand in my office/workshop. Some of the most enjoyable projects are those that I custom make. It is an honor to be asked to work on a special piece to fit a special occasion! Thank you for visiting…I hope to hear from you!
