Bodacious Butterflies are hand made real butterfly wing pendant, silver, woven beaded, and single strand jewelry. Each piece is totally unique; there are no two creations alike! All Bodacious Butterflies jewelry are designed and hand made by Christine, the artist. Christine creates her art in her home studio and the Working Silver studio in New Westminster. The River District Farmers Market is delighted to welcome Christine and her beautiful bodacious butterflies works of art to our farmers market and growing River District Vancouver community.
What do you like best about a Farmers Market Vendor?
I love meeting new people and sharing stories about my work. I enjoy connecting with the public and meeting other folks who also have a passion and appreciation for the creative and expressive arts.
What attracted you to the River District Farmers Market?
I have never participated in this market before, and I wanted to branch out to new communities that I haven’t yet explored. I was also drawn to the beautiful backdrop of the gorgeous trees and lovely river front views.
What is your passion other than jewelry making?
Definitely music. I am a full time music therapist, music teacher, and performer. Music is my life! I am a classically trained pianist who now mostly plays jazz, a singer, guitarist, and percussionist.
What is your favourite part of the job?
I love being in my studio creating. I enjoy sketching out design ideas; pouring over my supplies and just letting the inspiration come to me. I often create in the moment, and let my current mood state guide how I want to present the current piece I’m working on.
What is your least favourite part of the job?
I would have to say standing on my feet all day! Props to the folks in professions who are up and about all day long. I have recently bought some floor mats that I hope will help!
How do you unwind after a long day at the Farmers Market?
With a cold drink or some gelato, my comfy clothes, a couch, and some serious Netflix time!
