I have been making jewelry since I was a child. When I was a little girl my Mom would buy me the glass vials of beads from the store. I would bring them home and separate all the colors into different containers. From there I would string my beads on fishing wire. Everyone in the house had something I made. I am so fascinated by the colors in every bead. I know I sat for hours arranging and rearranging my beads. Then came the telephone wire of many colors. I would stop on the way home from school when I saw the telephone man fixing the wires in the box and ask for the wire that he was disgarding. With that wire I would braid and twist patterns for necklaces, bracelets and rings. It's like taking a paint brush and giving color to everything.
I've been making jewelry for sale for the last 15 years. I lived in Winter Haven, Florida when I started selling my pieces. A friend of mine…
