One of a Kind Jewelry for the Fashion Concious Woman

As a woman of 72, I am often asked where I get my motivation and energy. Its easy - its in the genes. My 90 + year young mother went to work in her country hotel 7 days a week. When my husband asked her when she was going to sell and retire - she said, " when I get old ". Now that's a motivating attitude ! My goal at this time in my third career, is to make woman of all ages look and feel the best they can. I work with semi precious stones, silver , acrylics, Lucites and any unique product that I can find to create timeless one of a kind hand made jewelry. I have created over 2300 pieces , yup, no two the same !

On line shopping is the wave of the future in this age of computers, so my goal is to concentrate my efforts on show casing my product on venues such as Etsy .Also, to continue to do open houses at my studio, which overlooks the Elbow River in a little artisan town in the Foothills of the Rocky Mountain, near Calgary, Alberta.

What is unique about my product ? Each piece is one of a kind, and hand made, not mass produced, you will be unique when you wear my creations. My husband and I travel a fair bit and one of my greatest pleasures is searching out unique beads. In Cuba , at a flea market I found alligator beads ! Quality and service is number one, and is the reason in truth, why I have some long time customers whom have purchased over 50 pieces each, over the past few years for themselves and for personal and business gifts. I stand by all my creations and my guarantee is your complete satisfaction and your desire to come back for more ! What keeps me motivated at 72, Remember, age is only a number, is the Adrenalin flow I get when I look at a creation and i say YES!!. And, the excitement transmitted to me from a satisfied customer!
