She especially enjoys seed beading and loom weaving and is a master of blending colors together for magical results. Cheri started crafting at an early age and loved all forms, especially drawing and sewing. She made her first piece of jewelry in first grade: a floral brooch for her mother. She used newsprint paper mache for the petals and three-dimensional flower centers to make a stunning gift, though with an odd smell. The flower centers were made of Friskies dry cat food painted yellow!
