Greetings, my name is Susan. All of my life I have been making things. I was no more than four years old when I embroidered a child's apron. I still have it. By the age of five I had graduated to knitting. I wasn't actually making anything but I remember running to my mother to fix my mistakes.

They taught me how color influences our lives, how when you make something, anything, make it well.

Almost five years ago I lost my accounting position and unconsciously decided not to return to the corporate world. The eventual journey led me to Etsy and now to you. Naturally I hope you will appreciate my creations. I don't know that I have a particular style but I do know that when I look at a beautiful bead(s) I ask "What do you want to become?" A bracelet? Perhaps a necklace? Maybe earrings? Eventually I get it.

Until mid October 2011 this shop was a joint sisterly effort (thus the "s" in "harrysgirls") but she opened up her own art and photography shop here on Etsy and now we are both on our own, happily doing what we do.
