Leigh-Anne's Profile

About

I believe in offering items that have that little bit more...something extra: more intricate patterns, more complicated designs. I also believe in offering variety and one of a kind items. I enjoy handcrafting beautiful pieces for others and myself and am constantly trying new designs to challenge myself. I also create designs of my own. Precision, quality and simplicity are my priorities.
I love beads, I love the feel of beads and the thousands of color choices. I love combining those beads in creations that are truly one of a kind.
Something else that I really love is the ocean. I have realized that some very important and memorable moments in my life have involved the ocean. I became a scuba diver at the tender age of 16 and spent a lot of time diving with my dad. It was great. There were some fabulous experiences during that time that I will never forget. For example, we were night diving in…

Something else that I really love is the ocean. I have realized that some very important and memorable moments in my life have involved the ocean. I became a scuba diver at the tender age of 16 and spent a lot of time diving with my dad. It was great. There were some fabulous experiences during that time that I will never forget. For example, we were night diving in Grand Cayman and came across an octopus. I shone my dive light on it and it was a gorgeous turquoise blue and then suddenly it changed to match its surroundings (camouflage). Wow. My love of the oceans extended on into my studies - I couldn't imagine studying anything else! So, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Biology. After school was over, I was fortunate to experience seeing killer whale pods off the coast of Victoria BC. They are so beautiful in their natural setting. I have realized that even though I am landlocked, I have a great love of the ocean and its inherent creatures. The oceans are in trouble for so many reasons (oil spills, global warming, etc.) Because of this, I want to give back - I want to contribute 10% of the proceeds from the sales in my shop to an organization called Oceana. I have been doing some reading about this group and am very impressed with what they have accomplished. They dedicate their efforts to protecting the oceans and marine animals - you can read about them here:
