About

I began making jewelry when I was in my teens, and throughout all the teen angst and tough times since then, it is one of the few things that has really stayed with me! I am truly passionate about my craft, and there are few other things that make me as happy as sitting down at my desk, peering into my vast collection of beads and findings, and discovering just the right combination of colors and materials to craft something truly special and unique.

In 2012 I became Mama to the most beautiful little girl! Since then my passion and drive for this craft has only grown, as I strive to make a living for myself and for my daughter. The last several years have been extremely difficult, but a pair of chain nose pliers, some good music in the background, and my daughter's sweet face make it all worth it. Keep on keepin' on!

It is so important to me that I run my business in the most ethical way that I can, with as little waste as I can manage. My packages are made from the boxes of products that we use in our home! They are cut mostly from cereal boxes, always clean, and produced 100% by my own hands in my own studio. Since my boxes are basically free, I am able to cut down on my own costs as well as yours, and keep all those materials out of landfills. I recycle all of my scraps, as well as every other recyclable item that enters my home. By purchasing from me, not only will you have the privilege of seeing what my family is eating this week, you'll be protecting the environment as well! =D

Embrace the hippie within!
