QUOTES FOR ALL SEASONS OF YOUR LIFE
Thank you for clicking onto my website. My name is Kathy Henning and I am the original
HAMMERING GIRL. I am a multi-media artist. My storefront is a 4 foot x
4 foot booth, a small but prime piece of real estate, at the historic
103 year old Pike Place Public Market in Seattle, Washington, USA. I
set up my affirmation bracelet display each morning , and pack it up
again each evening. Throughout the midnight hours the booths are empty.
Each morning they come to life again.
The market is my home. I
am surrounded by old friends, new friends, and awesome things. All
around are fresh flowers, fresh produce, artists, farmers, musicians,
arts, crafts, and music. Every year, over 10 million visitors from
around the world and locally come here to experience our market’s
vibrant uniqueness and take home great memories. It is a public market,
owned by the citizens of Seattle. It is more than a pearl. It is a
I have sold my art and affirmation bracelets at
Pike Place Market for 23 years and I am very grateful to be a part of
this incredible community of diverse cultures and one of a kind
treasures found only here. The view from my “shop”
at the market overlooks the breath-taking Puget Sound, several islands,
and the Olympic Mountains. Seattle sunsets are among the best. Ferry
boats and cruise ships, cargo containers and tug boats, sailboats and
kayaks, sea lions and salmon all go about their glorious day on top of
and below the water. And WOW! I love it here.
For the past 10
years I have been hand hammering affirmation bracelets and earrings,
one letter at a time, onto sterling silver and copper metals. I use a
ball peen hammer and individual steel stamps to create my jewelry. The
whole process requires a LOT of hammering. And that is why they call me
the HAMMERING GIRL.
WHAT YOU THINK YOU BECOME
hope is to connect with your heart and soul. I strive to have quotes
that fit all seasons of your life. I am also happy to hand hammer
custom affirmation bracelets for you; a truly unique gift.
It has been a pleasure to personally meet so many of you throughout the
years. I hope you find my affirmation jewelry a meaningful gift for you
or someone you love. Please feel free to email me, call, or come visit
me at the market with any questions or orders. You can find me, or my
awesome employees at the market most days of the year.
