Where did I get the name “treesea”. I have always loved the sea…crashing waves, sand, nightbreezes, gulls, sunsets, margaritas….and I am very partial to the forests also…greens and browns, smell of wet leaves, chirping birds, scuttling sound of critters, fairys, elves, dew.
But that’s not where the name comes from. My real name is Patrice…but my mom always called me “tricee” (pronounced tree-sea) so…there you go. Mom actually got me started making jewelry. It was a great passtime of hers and when she was no longer able to make lots of things, she started giving away all her beads etc. Well, I took some of them, but never made a thing. Then one day I wanted a lanyard to hold my badge that would match something I was wearing (I’m a hospice nurse). I decided it didn’t look to hard to do so I made one. That day at work, a co-worker saw it and said…wow…I like that… where can I get one. I said “I guess I could make you one”…..and there it started….that was about 3 years ago and I have been making jewelry ever since. Yes…I am a newbie! To jewelry and to clay!
