Beach-Bound Blues

Who: Heather Hertel of Simple Daisy
What: Handcrafted Jewelry
Where: The Midwest
Why: A sea-blown whirlwind of creativity and colors, Heather makes fabulous jewelry and ingenious crafts, gardens up a storm, cooks, travels and celebrates life every which way possible. Her unquenchable spirit will buoy you up straightaway as she elbows you to quit taking life so seriously! Her jewelry designs remind me of sparkling treasures washed onshore...rough and tumbled, with vestiges of patterns and sparks of gems. Not your typical stamped out jewels, each piece is made by hand of precious metal clays, fired and finished, so no two are exactly alike.
Heather's obsession with Caribbean blue is evident a fellow Midwesterner with an undying ocean craving, I feel her pangs. You can take the girl away from the sea, but you can't take the sea away from the girl!
