Meet HV Mama - TinksTreasures

Debi Brown lives in Beacon and creates jewelry pieces for her shop Tink's Treasures. Debi shares the little treasures made by her grandson, like this bookmark.

My grandson, Patrick always stayed at least one day a week with me since he was 8 wks. old while Mommy & Daddy were at work. As he grew to be a toddler he was fascinated by my beads and beading tools and always asked me "play beads Grammy?" Over & over. I bought him some large wooden beads and stringing material and he would play with them but only if I got out my beads also. When he was about 3 yrs. I let him help me make a bookmark and he picked and strung all the tiny (#6) seed beads himself and chose a sunflower charm for one end because "mommy likes those" and a cross because he "loves Jesus the best" for the other end. I kept the bookmark and every time I look at it I can still see his tiny little fingers putting each bead on and choosing which color bead he was going to put on next. It makes me smile every time.

A boy and his beads, how can you not love that???
