About

Greetings!

I have been a teacher going on 14 years and love working with children. I taught music for 5 years in a Kindergarten - 8th grade school and loved it. I now teach general education and find there is never a dull moment. I needed to get a second job to help support my sons when our teachers' salaries were cut yet again, so I feel very blessed to have found Etsy. My shop on Etsy enables me to work from my home and not leave my boys.

About my lanyards:

I began really loving decorative necklace style lanyards because we have a policy to wear our ID badge at all times, and the clip-on or generic lanyards tend to get in the way of my necklaces or just look unprofessional. I find it also boring to wear the same lanyard every day, so I thought it perfect to blend the two, as to not relinquish…

About my lanyards:

I find it also boring to wear the same lanyard every day, so I thought it perfect to blend the two, as to not relinquish style and professionalism. I know that everyone has different preferences about how they want to wear their lanyards/ ID badges, so I'm happy to work with what you prefer in a custom order. Lanyards usually take me about 1- 2 hours to make, so please just know that custom work may take a day or two to get completed and shipped. Everything else you see on my site is ready to ship as it is.

About my jewelry:

I strive for the very best in my work at reasonable, affordable prices. I use quality products to create what inspires me, and since my taste is eclectic, you'll see a wonderful variety of beautiful work to choose from. I also feel that it's important to be affordable to everyone and keep my prices low simply for that purpose. The idea is to have fun with your work wardrobe and make purchases like you would any other jewelry. Most of what I've seen at the mall or stores frustrates me due to overpricing of really unspectacular items. I feel women should have more fun accessorizing those final touches to make themselves feel special and professional. Why not dress in a unique way that makes you happy to start your day off right?

**********If you need that justification to splurge on yourself, here it is**********

Even just one or two lanyards costs less than you might spend at a drive through or a lunch with a friend. It's definitely less than the last time I took my boys to the movies, less than treating your friends at a coffee shop, and it will last you a lot longer as well. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by my site, and I hope you enjoy my work.
