About

My name is Stephanie Jackson. Being the youngest of ten children, I would say I come from a big family. My family has a background of art. My grandmother used to knit these beautiful blankets and wall hangings. My father, who used to work with jewelry in his younger years, pursued drafting. He retired in 2007, and my brother and sister also took up drafting. Four of five of my brothers draw and paint, one of my sister-in-laws makes jewelry as well. My nieces and nephews are also very artistically and musically inclined. So with that background, me doing something with art was inevitable.

I came up with the name "lilworkerb", when I was angry. I was swamped with things to do, and demands just kept flowing in. I said to myself, "I'll just shut up like a good little bee and keep at it." Thus: lilworkerb! It just stuck.

A few bad school experiences led to me being a homeschool kid, which by the way allowed me to graduate a year early. (woot woot!) I got my start making jewelry at the age of eleven, on a boring summer day. I just sat down, and decided to make some earrings, pieced together using scraps from around the house. I tried them on, and that was it, I was addicted. I of course graduated from the scraps, to more suitable materials.

Most people don't know that I'm also a huge music fan, and that most of what I make depends on what I have in my cd player. When I don't have anything good to listen to, I get what I like to call, "beaders block". One of my life dreams was to study meteorology, so who knows where I will end up on the next boring summer day.
