About

The Prickly Pear is a unique, creative, crafty shop.

Before The Prickly Pear came into existence, it was the hobby of a creative young woman (me) . It was something that I enjoyed doing. I absolutely loved crafting and creating things. It was something I was good at.

The transformation into a small business came about while I was teaching when fellow teachers needed someone to come up with decorations for a party. After that, there were a few orders for banners, but I sort of lost my way when I was let go due to a lack of students in my area. I began creating things out of my home. It was anything you could think of: banners, hair bows, wall art, tutus,etc. Things were finally getting going, but another life event came about: divorce. I moved back in with my parents, and my stuff was here, there, and yonder. It was hard to locate any of my supplies, but I was determined to make this work. I started doing craft shows and was getting extra orders from that as well as from a local photographer looking for props. I moved again in 2014 to start again somewhere new and have since been creating for my online shop and learning all there is to know about crafts and marketing. I developed a blog that I finally have been motivated to keep up with! I create when my creativity gets a spark and just go with it. I do what "feels" right, and I am so glad I listened to my gut and decided creativity was the way to go!

Currently, I offer a variety of jewelry pieces and string art in my shop, but I'll be expanding out into different areas soon. I couldn't be more excited!

Also, if you want something custom made, I welcome those orders, too! They're so fun to work on :) It doesn't have to be strictly jewelry--I love all crafts. Message me and I'll let you know if it's a craft I can do.
