A very handsome gent with white hair approached me and asked me what I was doing that weekend. I told him, I'm sorry but I'm married. He laughed. He stated there was a rock & mineral jewelry show that weekend at the mall and he needed another gal to help make and sell jewelry. I told him I don't know the first thing about designing and selling jewelry. He stated, don't worry the girls will teach you. I worked that Saturday and loved bead work. That was the beginning.

As I improved in my beading skills, I started to sell to friends. I also went to beauty shops and asked the owners if I could set out some jewelry to sell. I sold quite alot. I received orders as well. The ball started rolling…

As I improved in my beading skills, I started to sell to friends. I also went to beauty shops and asked the owners if I could set out some jewelry to sell. I sold quite alot. I received orders as well. The ball started rolling.

I worked as a customer service rep and sold to the girls that worked with me. I always received a lot of compliments on my designs, colors and work. I make sure each piece is done to perfection. I had guidance for 2 years from a gemologist who was commissioned by Disney World to make their crystal jewelry.

I work with only Swarovski crystals, glass pearls, genuine freshwater pearls, semi-precious
stones, vintage Czechoslovakian glass beads, lampwork, gold fill findings and wire, sterling findings and wire, gold plate and silver plate findings.

Please check back periodically as I will be listing new jewelry items.
