hammer I followed my inspiration, instead of my to do list today, and worked with some new tools and techniques. Some days you have to let your inner artist out to play. blush
(Inspired by Captain Picard from Star Trek TNG. The letters spell "make it so.")
These Fluorite earrings were supposed to be #beadmystash challenge piece 8, but I got sick before I could post them. Fluorite is so pretty with its combination of purples, blues, and greens! heart_eyespurple_heartblue_heartgreen_heart
I woke up with an idea... dragon_face
I was on a roll with the #10daychallenge before life interrupted. face_with_thermometer It was fun, but it doesn't work well with #spoonielife. When inspiration hits I'm still going to #beadmystash, so keep an eye out for new creations! blush

How LuvCherie Jewelry Got It's Start:
During Thanksgiving 2009, Amy's mother-in-law introduced her to the joy of bead stores and taught her how to make wire loops. Before the weekend was over, Amy was hooked on jewelry making.

On January 26, 2010, Amy opened LuvCherie Jewelry on Etsy. She soon sold a piece to a local friend and didn't know how to pay the sales tax. She discovered she was supposed to have state and city business licenses. Oops! After Amy received her licenses in the mail, she began to learn everything she could about running a small business. She wanted to do it right.

In August 2011 Amy quit her day job to focus on LuvCherie Jewelry full-time. It was a scary decision, but it was the right one. Today, Amy is driven to make LuvCherie Jewelry all it can possibly be. :)

Where does the name "LuvCherie" come from?
LuvCherie (pronounced "love-share-ee") has been Amy's internet name since 1994 and the early days of AOL. It is a hybrid of “love” and her middle name Cherie.
