Ryka... I am the designer and maker of this fine and affordable jewelry...,Nothing but positive energy is put into my craft....I love what I am doing with my life and craft and want to share it with you....and pay my bills. I am in my new place love it.
I started stringing love beads at the beach with my best friend Margie back in 1965....I have worn many hats in my life and I want to make it here at Etsy with all of my designs and also some other ones that are just a twinkle in my eyes.
Thank goodness my other staple and passion in life has been with horses. I have done just about it all well except racing. I teach at Kensington Stables on the weekends. I am the Senior Childrens Instructor. I teach riding to beginner children ages 5 and up until the time they can handle a horse in a NYC park. I love it and I am very busy there on weekends but it is not enough...
My love and interest…
