From the Florida Beach to the Sands of Jordan
My background is in Art Licensing and Design and I have been blessed to have my designs used on products all over the world. Unfortunately, I started developing shoulder problems from the long hours on the computer, and I knew that I would have to make a change. I love the beach! I live on the Gulf Coast of Florida and treasure hunting for shells is one of my favorite pastimes, hence creating the coastal themed jewelry, incorporating my designs and the treasures I collected, seemed like a good next step. That's when I opened my Etsy Shop.
Then, I found out about torch-fired enameling and took to it like a duck to water! I love all things creative and the colors of the enamels as they came to life on the beads was so wonderful. Right away I received a large order from a local boutique for necklaces and earrings, and in the process of sourcing the supplies to fill that order, I ended up deciding to sell the supplies myself, making for another transition.
The journey continued as God opened the doors for me to go to Lebanon and Jordan and work with marginalized women and Syrian Refugees, teaching classes and doing product development and giving hope. The supply side of my shop grew to accommodate the work that I was doing there. I have fallen in love with the various metal beads that I carry and have had so much fun experimenting with different ways to use them. It has taken me a long time to get them all posted, but I look forward to offering kits and finished products made with them soon.
