Please check out my other two etsy shops at http://mayababyjewelry.etsy.com and http://inmyurbanjungle.etsy.com

I have been interested in fashion and jewelry basically from birth. I worked in retail in California for most of my life then moved to Las Vegas after the earthquake in 1994. I opened my own clothing and accessory stores in Las Vegas and had them for about 6 years. If I had been born a little later, I definitely would have been a fashion stylist. I love dressing women and making them look better than they thought they could. After I closed my stores I was looking for something else to do and started making jewelry as a hobby mostly for myself. After I made things for family and friends, they started calling me to tell me that people were asking about the jewelry and wanting to know where to buy it. Voila, a business is born. I have just been selling to family and friends…

After I made things for family and friends, they started calling me to tell me that people were asking about the jewelry and wanting to know where to buy it. Voila, a business is born. I have just been selling to family and friends till now at jewelry parties and such. I have lots of loyal clients who tell me that they get stopped and asked about and complimented on the jewelry constantly.

I must say that I design with making a statement in mind. I don't do dainty jewelry. I know a lot of people make jewelry so I try to be different and look for unusual materials. I also like to use a lot of metal with the beads to make the beads pop and the piece stand out more. I love sterling silver but am experimenting with copper and brass as well.

Hopefully, you will love what I do and keep checking back as I am adding new things frequently. I have two little dogs that are the lights of my life. My avatar for this shop is Toby, my Yorkie. I adopted him from a rescue in Victorville, Ca. He was an owner turn in. I think his owner may have been trying to sell the puppies but Toby has a crooked nose and one eye is smaller. I think the owner thought he wouldn't be able to sell him because of this so turned him over to a small dog rescue. I think his crooked nose and little eye make him perfect. His sister, Maya, is the avatar for my other etsy shop: http://mayababyjewelry.etsy.com Making jewelry lets me be home all day with them which we all like. Thanks for browsing.
