And for the many special ladies in your life… Maybe she’s a mom. A girlfriend. Perhaps she’s a wife. Does she fancy the finer things, like bracelets and earrings? Or are confetti scarves the extent of her bling? Does she fish? Does she hike? Does she ride a bike? Does she cook? Does she doodle? Does she enjoy a good noodle? Is she acoustic or electric? Perhaps she’s eclectic. Where do you start? How about wearable art?
