Sisterly Creations – The Sisters
Barbara and Anine were born and raised in Victor, MT in the Bitterroot Valley, along with three brothers, by cattle and mink ranchers. They both attended Montana State University where they obtained a BS in Nursing. Their nursing careers both started in small rural Montana hospitals. Barbara’s career involved emergency and trauma nursing which took her to Alaska for over 20 years. Anine’s career led her to obtain a nurse practitioner master degree. She operated a Family Medicine Clinic in Tennessee. Since Barb’s semi-retirement, she moved to Eastern Montana. In 2013 Anine relocated back to Montana to continue their commitment to displaying Montana’s natural beauty in their creations. Their mutual love of rocks gave birth to “Sisterly Creations”. Every year they rock hound for Montana Moss Agates and Petrified Wood and then decide which rocks to cut and design for their jewelry. They spend hours talking about designs, supplies and shows to attend.
