SJR Legacy Designs is the home-brand of Shell & Floral. So when you see it, know that the product was made with love by me!
When I was a child, for a time, I lived with my mother, grandparents, and great grandmother. Back then, I had no idea how fortunate it was to live with four generations in the same home. Now that I am older, with children of my own, I appreciate that time more than I ever have.
My family is filled with creatives. My mother (Susan), grandmother (Jeanne), and great grandmother (Rose) were all artists in their own way. They, and many others in my family, have inspired and influenced me.
From my great grandmother, I learned the impact of creating things that outlive me by designing them well. I, and many members of my family, have pieces she created that we treasure. From my grandmother, I learned to appreciate the beauty of nature, they joy of gardening, and the value of creating sustainably. From my mother, I learned to appreciate aesthetic value, the importance of revision, but also the liberation of drawing freely, and how to foster the confidence to do-it-myself.
SJR Legacy Designs brings together the creativity and artistry of generations to create unique handmade gifts and unique designs from my heart.
