Welcome! Thank you so much for your interest in my little shop :) My journey into jewelry started out when I was 20 years old...traveling around in a bright orange VW bus, selling macrame jewelry at music festivals and in concert parking lots. I've certainly come a long way since then! I continued to make jewelry for friends and family while I was in college, my little "hobby". I have always been enamored by gemstones, rocks, and anything "old" looking. My hobby became an obsession and before I knew it, I was making jewelry for my first craft show. I knew at that point I wanted to run my own successful business one day. Now, your idea of success may be different from mine.

I loved every minute of that shop! When I became pregnant with my first child I decided to give up the shop to be a stay at home mom....being a sole shop owner required a lot of hours and I wanted to be able to devote 100% of my energy to my new "baby"! It was tough to give up that shop, but I wouldn't change that decision for anything. My success as a mom (of 2 kids now), a wife, a home-maker, and an ETSY shop owner fills my heart everyday. It may not always be easy, but I LOVE it and feel completely blessed in life. I can't thank my customers enough for all the support and for allowing me to live MY success in life!
