Sheila's Profile

About

We are a husband and wife team. Sheila does all the digital work for all our products and makes the scrabble tiles, dominos and bottle caps. Mark does all the shipping and makes the light switch covers and coasters. We truly enjoy working together and think we make a great team!!!

This whole thing got started with Sheila fixing some of her broken jewelry in college, and realized that she really enjoyed "playing" with her jewelry.

My favorites are the scrabble tile, bottle cap and domino necklaces (same process, just different medium). I love those because you can't just sit down and do them, it is a multi-step, multi-day process, you get to get your hands dirty a little bit, there is the design element to them, and then you have to put them together to create a ring, necklace or bracelet. I just get a kick out of the entire process…

Oh, and where would I be without the beadwork? I love to bead and make beautiful jewelry!

While I genuinely love making all of my jewelry, over the past year, I have realized that I love making jewelry for the younger girls. I love seeing young girls get excited and begin the passion for jewelry that I have!!! I have heard so many parents say "she normally doesn't like jewelry..." That makes me feel so good that the girls like what they see!

Mark is a combat veteran from the Iraq War. Thankfully he came home after 15 months of deployment. He was subsequently medically discharged with a bad knee and hearing loss from an IED that exploded directly under his Humvee in Iraq. I am thankful every single day that he is home safe. (even if he can't hear half of what I say! :-) We have the most amazing child and I feel truly blessed to have both our little family and our little business.
