Best of the Bronx: Artist uses nature to sell jewelry
A Bronx resident is selling creative jewelry from her apartment.
Andrea Reed is making hand-crafted earrings and selling them online. She says her inspiration comes from nature.
"I enjoy it so much, it's kind of like sanity, it gives me peace, it's just a great thing," she says.
Reed makes earrings from fish scales, natural shredded deer antlers and lava rocks. She says she sells most her jewelry online and goes to local shows around the state.
"To be able to come home and do something that God put inside my head, to bring it out to the world and for it to manifest and for people to enjoy it is amazing," she says.
Reed says she's already getting new pieces ready for the fall.
