I began making jewelry when I was in my teens, and throughout all the teen angst and tough times since then, it is one of the few things that has really stayed with me! I am truly passionate about my craft, and there are few other things that make me as happy as sitting down at my desk, peering into my vast collection of beads and findings, and discovering just the right combination of colors and materials to craft something truly special and unique.
In 2012 I became Mama to the most beautiful little girl! Since then my passion and drive for this craft has only grown, as I strive to make a living for myself and for my daughter. The last several years have been extremely difficult, but a pair of chain nose pliers, some good music in the background, and my daughter's sweet face make it all worth it. Keep on keepin' on!
It is so important to…
