She has been an artisan for thirty years. Her attention to detail is second to none and, at seventy, her style remains timeless. For her entire creative life, her art has remained within the confines of close family and friends, until now…
A Dream Brought to Life
Paula’s son-in-law, Blade Davis, spent years pushing her to go public with her art. She would always reply hysterically, “I’m no salesman.” Knowing Blade loved to connect with people, it wasn’t long before Paula began to push back, telling him to team up with her and “be her salesman.” One day, Blade stopped by for a short visit and walked through one of Paula’s crafting rooms. He looked around at the hand-poured soy candles that Paula worked tirelessly to perfect. Then on to another room that held hand-crafted, copper gem trees. Then, on one wall, a work bench with myriads of hand-crafted copper jewelry pieces. It registered to Blade, “This could be something.”
Today, Blade and his wife Beth, along with their three kids, work side-by-side (literally) creating timeless pieces that can be passed from generation to generation.
