touches. Ladies and gentleman; we proudly present... JENNY FORKS, OF BITTER CREEK DESIGNS What do you think of when you look at this beautiful woman? What do you feel when you gaze at her incredible designs? Where does this kind of beauty come from- and where is it headed? Does beauty and talent always reach its own level of accomplishment or does it need to be fueled by a passionate drive to ultimately reach its pinnacle of success? I’ve always believed that true wealth comes from the power of the heart. Jenny Forks is a living manifestation of that wealth. But when you discover the intense depth of what this young woman gives on a daily basis, you will be dumbfounded at how she does it! Between designing her beautiful jewelry – teaching her bead classes – managing her shop – running her Bead for Hope Foundation and her profound dedication to family, you will find yourself wondering where her energy comes from!. My desire to reveal the true Jenny led me to the person who knows her best; her loving husband Kris. One warm afternoon after Jenny’s cover shoot, the three of us enjoyed a quiet lunch filled with some very revealing information. When I asked Kris if Jenny was “driven” in pursuing her career, he thoughtfully replied: “I wouldn’t use the word “driven.” I would say Jenny was “hungry”… always hungry for more. When she reaches a destination point she instantly is hungry to go to the next level. She is hungry to be the best in everything she does. But what she hungers for the most is love – and she applies that love in everything she does. Love is her personal motivation. It is in her jewelry- in our marriage- in our children, and in her “Bead for Hope Foundation” for sick children. Jenny is always hungry for more: More opportunities to go to the next level of accomplishment – more opportunities to give to othersJenny is always hungry... to give more love. But it's her grateful heart that fuels that special hunger and love.” After that amazing statement Kris leaned into his beautiful wife and gave her a gentle kiss on the cheek. Instantly that classic Jenny smile streamed into the room like a ray of sunshine. In a world riddled with competition confusion and jealousy, I was encouraged to see two humble people –very much in love and dedicated to each other- obviously each others’ greatest fans. It became abundantly clear this was Jenny’s true formula for success. This is what dreams are made of and made from. This is what it takes to make it and this is what it takes to stay on top. Love is the most powerful force on earth and when it is launched from a grateful heart it is virtually unstoppable. If Jenny is destined for stardom it is the power of love that will get her there and it is the power of love that will keep her there. So how does “love” manifest into the creation of beautiful jewelry? The answer will be apparent as you enter Bitter Creek Designs at “The Rim” in San Antonio Texas. When you enter Jenny’s 2,000 Sq. Foot “Sea of Silver” you will be overcome with the beauty of he
