“After an especially long and exhausting drive or flight, a grueling week at work, or a mind-numbing
Tammy and I of Entwined Vines Jewelry both have very busy lives. Tammy works at a corporate styled job that frequently requires overtime. This entire year has entailed mandatory 7 days a week with an average of 10 hours each day. This is on top of everyone normal; laundry, house work, yard work, maintaining of this house that she is the sole owner and resident. As you can imagine this is grueling week after week. I also have a pretty crazy life of a household of 6, running and operating of an in-home child care that is open a minimum of 60 hours a week, extended care with a special needs child for an additional 59 hours a week, as well as another business where I create cards, scrapbook pages, and sell products like paper and embellishments. We both continue to work Entwined Vines Jewelry AND work our share of duties with Artistic Portland a local artisans co-operative storefront (If you find yourself in the Portland, Oregon area be sure to stop by the shop and check it out as it is way cool and always changing depending on the members and what we are all creating at the time!) We both have one primary thing that always makes us feel human again and that is weaving wire. I know that I have mentioned many times that our passion is creating Viking knit pieces of jewelry and I am going to keep repeating this as it holds true many years later. Interested in seeing more?
