My late Grandpa had sheep, so all of us Grandkids would help. They lived by Nutria, an area where they had very dense clay. Herding sheep can be a very slow operation with lots of time to do other things, so we would collect this clay and make carvings. It would have to be dunked in some water and then cut. What we didn’t finish while herding the sheep, we would take home to work on.

Are all of you grandkids still making jewelry?
I have three brothers and two sisters, and all of us would help our grandparents. My Aunt was always with us, too. We all still make jewelry, but we all have our own style.
