Stephanie Draeger's Profile

About

I've loved to create handcrafted jewelry since childhood - my mom couldn't make a trip to a craft store without me begging her for a packet of seed beeds! I loved to create friendship bracelets, daisy chain rings, necklaces - you name it. I picked the hobby back up in my twenties - and graduated from seed beeds to bigger pieces - in order to fulfill my need to create with my hands. My friends and family told me I had to stop giving things away (literally being so flattered I gave jewelry off of my body to people who said they liked it) and encouraged me to start selling my work. I never intended to make a business out of it, yet here I am! I'm proud to be able to use this as an outlet for my busy hands as well as a way to give back to the planet. In my "real life" I'm a teacher and a mother to a wonderful little boy.
