BESTeam Feature 41 Park

A little holiday fun with our Best team Feature  41 Park
41 Park a very hip hand crafted Jewelry shop which can be found on Etsy

T’was the night before Christmas, when all through 41 PARK

There were jewelry for sale, 31 items on the mark.

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In hopes that Etsy buyers would soon be there.

The stones were all snug in their nest,

While visions of silver would shine from the rest.

An upon my finger, a spiral of copper did wrap

Had begun to settle, then my wrist a traveler did slap



When out in Natick there arose such a clatter,

I sprang from the earrings, to see what was the matter.

Away to the necklace section I flew like a flash,

Tore open the boxes and pulled off the sash.

I noticed how moon on the chain of the quartz crystal snow

Gave the luster of mid-day to objects below.

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,

But a mala style bracelet, with vintage beads that are just deer.

I called a little old driver, so lively and quick,

I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,

And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

"Now Pearl! now, Emerald! now, Turquoise and Tourmaline!

On, Crystal,! On, Ruby! , on Sapphire and Citrine!

To the box! And into my bag yall!

Now let’s dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,

They meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.

So up to the 41 Park check out the coursers they flew,

With a sleigh full of precious metals, and birthstones too.

But I did exclaim, ‘ere we drove out of sight,

"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

Keep up with 41 Park

How I started Crafting

One rainy afternoon 40 years ago in Southeast Georgia, I was fascinated by the crochet hook working its way so swiftly through the yarn in my grandmothers hands. So of course I asked her if she would teach me that magic art. I learned to crochet, then sew and quilt and realized how rewarding it was to create things with my hands. Over the years I moved on to sketching, painting, paper sculpting and stain glass work. Time moved on, I married and had a family. I had beautiful angelic little girls, girls that needed dresses, dance costumes and hair bows. There were beauty pageants complete with rhinestones, sequins, organza and tulle. I stayed busy and happy for years. Alas, the time came and the little angels finished college and flew away. Now I am the grandmother swiftly weaving the rhinestone decorated tulle in to beautiful tutus and joyously twisting ribbon into lovely little hair bows for the newest heavenly arrivals. I feel that you can  never be too old to learn a new craft.    Crafting sometimes can be artist way of showing love.
