Olga Gariepy's Profile
Hi! I'm Olga, a proud Rhode Island schoolteacher. Teaching - if you're doing it right, and I always do - is a stressful, rewarding, stressful, beautiful, frustrating, and stressful way to spend the long days of fall, winter, and spring - and then a few hot weeks in June.
How do we cope with all the rewarding stress? Some teachers do yoga. Some teachers 'journal.' Some teachers drink.
As for me, sparkly jewelry has always brought with it a certain...clarity. Sometimes drinking does too, but jewelry won't leave me with a headache in the morning. Now, as a self-taught jewelry designer, I find that making beaded and gemstone necklaces and bracelets, of my own design, can restore my sanity at the end of a hectic day of beautiful frustration.
Check out my designs! There are a lot of pretty...
