Debbie Marks' Profile

About

I've been creating jewelry for a few years now and feel like this is what I was born to do!

After working in the insurance and financial services industry for (too) many years, I sold my last agency a couple of years ago and decided to explore what has intrigued and called to me all my life - jewelry!

Pretty much from the time I could walk, I've been fascinated with all things pretty, dramatic and sparkly.

I live in the north Dallas metroplex area with my wonderful, supportive CPA husband, who, no surprise, is the Chief Beancounter, and my Mom - the Original Diva if there ever was one!

Life is good!
