My Son Robert
On May 18, 2003, my son, my only child, died in an auto accident. He was 31 years old. He left me with two beautiful granddaughters who are now 20 and 17.
He loved the outdoors, especially the Texas Hill Country. Hunting and fishing were his hobbies.
He adored his two daughters and they went everywhere with him!
He was always lending a helping hand, his wife Sherrie said he would mow the elderly ladies lawns in the neighborhood and when they would go to pay him, he said just give me a jar of your jelly!
He had a kind heart and always wore a beautiful smile.
I have such wonderful memories we made in those years I was blessed to have him.
Peace and Healing Through Designing Western Jewelry
Since my son was a cowboy, Deer Creek Jewelry was founded. I designed western jewelry using western conchos for pendants and gemstones. A friend taught me the basics and God helped me with the designing.
I did well with it, I had my jewelry displayed in three stores and stayed very busy making the jewelry. I have since closed out all my displays and just do it for fun.
I have taught my grandkids and nieces how to make their own jewelry and they make some beautiful pieces.
Through the creation of my jewelry God helped me find healing and peace! I would look at some of my pieces and think how on earth did I design that.
I wrote these words and had them displayed in a frame that stood on display with my jewelry.
Deer Creek Jewelry by Margie is in memory of my son, Robert who shared 31 years of love and smiles with us. He loved the outdoors especially the Texas Hill Country. Hunting and fishing were hobbies defining who he was. He lives on through his daughters Madison and Sydney. Through the creation of my jewelry, God continues to bring me healing and peace.
I have been blessed over the years to have my granddaughters live in the same town with me, and I am very involved in their lives. I see a part of my son in them every day.
My beautiful granddaughters helped me so much, I had to think of them and stayed very busy helping raise them. They are such awesome smart young ladies. The 20-year old will be graduating college in December 2019 and the 17-year old will graduate high school in May 2019.
