Meet Shannon from Peace of Mind! And Giveaway #2!

We are so excited to introduce you to our next new artist friend who will be with us at our Holiday Open House in Iowa City this weekend!!!  Meet Shannon from Peace of Mind!
Shannon and Jason Schoon are the owners and creators of Peace of Mind.  Shannon designs and creates every piece of jewelry and art glass by hand. From a very young age she had an obsession with rocks, buttons, and beads in every color. In college she studied and received her degree in Interior Design. She has also studied art at the University of Iowa and with local artists. Jason is the technical designer and finance manager for Peace of Mind, as well as assisting in shipping of orders. 
Shannon and Jason have 6 beautiful children, one of them an angel in heaven. When preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome caused the loss of their 4th child, they decided to pursue adopting from South Korea to complete their family. Later they were surprised with a sibling to their adopted son and brought him home as well. These life experiences have inspired many of Shannon’s designs. This includes many memorial pieces to help grieving parents, as well as jewelry that celebrates adoption and family.
 Here are examples of her work:

 In Shannon's own words:
Who is in your heart? What gives you your peace of mind? We take those sentiments and turn them into beautiful, personalized jewelry you can wear close to you. Our line includes mother’s jewelry as well as memorial, adoption celebration, and charity causes. We also offer one-of-a-kind gifts in colorful glass that will awe your loved ones or beautify your own decor.
