Hi, my name is Chandra and I live in Chattanooga, TN. My shop’s name “Tazleena” is a composite of my 2 Pekingese's names...Taz Milan and Angeleena. :D
Both my parents and their mothers were artists in more than one medium. Ceramics, quilting, sewing, knitting, tatting, crocheting and wood carving interested them, but any kind of craft might strike their fancy. I followed in their footsteps of needing a creative outlet but never found that one thing that held my interest to the exclusion of everything else until by pure happenstance I found jewelry design.
I started out with beading and enjoyed it, but still no burning passion. Then I found the wonderful combination of lampwork beads and wire wrapping and knew my search was over! It's a God given talent that burns inside me to be expressed.
It's been almost 7…
