I got two bracelets instead of one, which made me very happy! I had wonderful customer service and will definitely purchase from this store again!

In the beginning....

I've had a passion for art and music since as far back as I can remember. After graduating from high school, I wanted to go to art school. I took a more professional route because I thought it would be more secure. Big mistake.

After many years in a stagnant professional career I returned to my love of art and music. I connected with some local musicians and resumed singing. Additionally, I had always made my own jewelry for myself. Upon the urging of friends and family, I began to create pieces of jewelry for sale.

In 2005, I created Melodic Muse, Inc. Since then I have created and sold hundreds of items of jewelry at various indie craft events, art shows and charity events. While vending at local events can be plenty of fun, it is a great deal of work - lugging tables, displays and product to and from and event; dealing with location issues such as adverse weather conditions, lack of electricity and poor cell phone signal for credit transactions; and minding a table/booth for the duration of an event.

In 2009, I decided to create my Etsy store to avoid some of the time and cost strains associated with vending at events. My Etsy store has given me the opportunity to scale back on time-consuming and unprofitable events, which allows me to focus on evolving my art.

I love all things related to tattoos, rockabilly, Dia de los Muertos, goth and skulls. I have a love/hate relationship with tequila. I enjoy wearing high heels and girly dresses (sleeveless or strapless to show off my tattoos) and hanging out with my tattooed friends in the Molokai Lounge at the Mai-Kai.

    I love making jewelry, mixed media art and anything else artsy I can find time for. Being a member of a band feeds my other loves - of music and singing. I also enjoy Muse-ing - inspiring others to reach their full creative potential.
