As I mentioned in a previous post I was going to start bringing to light some of the cool people I know and their endeavors. A friend of mine who is a crazy crafty artistic goddess has a teenage daughter, Saffira. When she was younger she wanted to learn how to make friendship bracelets. Her mother taught her some basic jewelery making and that was the start of a thriving business of a young woman’s creative force.
I think the octopus appeals so much, because Saffira and I share a love of sailing. This past summer I had suggested to her mother, that she might enjoy an apprenticeship on the tall ships that were here. Her mother got her into the program and Saffira found a new passion. She completed the program and enjoyed sailing across Lake Michigan. She has expressed the desire to be a ship Captain, hopefully she will not give up her jewelry making for the high seas.
Saffira offers affordable unique items. Most are very small production of only a few of each piece. She also offers custom work as well. So get those gifts before the holidays and support a young artist.
