Copper Wire Jewelers Welcomes Member #400 - Danette Steimle

Please join me in welcoming Danette Steimle, our 400th Member at Copper Wire Jewelers. A multi-talented Jewelry Artist  who creates dynamic and exciting pieces from her "little yellow house on a hill in the countryside of Brush Prairie, Washington.", Danette tells me much of her inspiration comes "from sitting and just looking out the window at my view."

Like me, Danette loves pearls and it's evident when you visit her new site Fine Windings . Touch of Lavender, one of her favorites and mine too is a cascade of lavender fresh water pearls and sterling silver which you can find right along side the equally lovely Gold Class with, you guessed it, gold pearls and gold filled wire. Yumm! But Danette's not limited to just pearls and incorporates stones, crystals and of course Copper in her work. Fine Windings is for her richest pieces but if you are on a bit of a budget, and who isn't today, you also need to visit her Etsy store Fine Windings on Etsy which features gorgeous jewelry for under $50.00.

Our 400th member is a life long crafter, creating with her hands since her teens. She has enjoyed "crocheting and knitting, stamping, scrap booking, painting, making jewelry, beading, sewing and decorating. Currently she's crocheting Shopping Bags and always has a project waiting to be worked. With a thirst for knowledge, Danette, strives to learn so that she can master, not just play, at the craft work she loves. I often warn people of the addiction that is wire wrapping and Danette's been bitten by the wire bug. She says, "It wasn't until last year that I started wire wrapping, and I instantly fell in love. I don't think a day has gone by that I haven't created something from wire since then (though not all of it has been admirable! lol)." Hard to believe with the beautiful examples I've seen. 
Hand made is a family affair at Danette's house. She creates from her home studio, complete with computer set up and jewelers bench, hand made by her husband, to her specs, not to mention the recent addition of a TV also courtesy of her husband. Now that is husbandly support, I tell ya.

"Our oldest kids have left for college and we have a daughter at home who is a 17 and a son who is 12.  Aside from Jesus, my husband, Matthew, is the light of my life along with my children.  It's a real blessing to be able to work from home and be here for my family, too!" and of her home she says, " It's just paradise here."

I predict great things to come for our 400th Member. With her creative talents, thirst for knowledge and the drive of a natural artist, she's sure to be a success. Welcome to Copper Wire Jewelers.
