Hi! I'm Olga, a proud Rhode Island schoolteacher. Teaching - if you're doing it right, and I always do - is a stressful, rewarding, stressful, beautiful, frustrating, and stressful way to spend the long days of fall, winter, and spring - and then a few hot weeks in June.

As for me, sparkly jewelry has always brought with it a certain...clarity. Sometimes drinking does too, but jewelry won't leave me with a headache in the morning. Now, as a self-taught jewelry designer, I find that making beaded and gemstone necklaces and bracelets, of my own design, can restore my sanity at the end of a hectic day of beautiful frustration.

Let's sparkle (and stay sane) together,
Olga
