About

The love of making beautiful jewelry.

My interest in beads and beading began through my sisters, who have been in the business of designing beautiful handcrafted jewelry for many years. They taught me how to first visualize in my mind a design, and then creating a unique piece of jewelry. They taught me to focus on the importance of a piece’s uniqueness and to also having great pride for your work. In short, they taught me how to become a successful jewelry designer!

My most precious reward is having a satisfied customer; being able to put a smile on a client’s face, this is my joy as an innovative designer.

I am also attracted to the infinite combinations that are possible with different shapes, colors, textures & sizes of beads, and enjoy most of all working with designs that incorporate many colors.

A SUDDEN TWIST CHANGED MY LIFE!

In November 2016, after getting back from a stressful day at work, I sat down by my husband as he listened to the news, I remember the breaking news at that moment, "Russian plane crash in Egypt where 224 passengers including children have died"; suddenly began to lose my speech, numbness took over the right side of my body, and I could not speak. I stood up and began trying to communicate with my husband and could not express what I mentally was going through. After a few minutes, as difficult as it was, I was able to take control of my body and finally communicate to my husband what I had just gone through. Next day I went to my doctor where they immediately diagnosed my condition to have been a mini stroke, and told me that I should have gone to the emergency when this happened.

After going through tons of exams, MRI's, etc, I finally was told that I was in a stable condition, and that I would just have to begin taking a blood thinner. So in the event that I would have another stroke the thinners would help the stroke to be mild, with chances of helping to avoid a major stroke. I don't really know what caused the mini stroke, it could have been the exhaustion after getting home from work, or a combination of both the tiredness with the news of the plane crash.

After this terrible experience, I than realized that my days working outside of my home were over. I was concerned, and just began to wonder, what am I going to do now? It did not take me long to realize that it was what I already was doing in my spare time, I will devote my extra time to continue making jewelry. To do what I love doing, creating jewelry. It gives me time to relax, I can put in the time that I want, no pressure or deadlines, and I am now in a stress free environment. Although I have been making jewelry since the year 2005, (11 years), I can now say that Jewelry making is my therapy. It helps to continue creating, which triggers my ability to think, and to be productive.

Having embarked on this road of making jewelry in previous years, is now helping me to cope with the anxiety and stress that comes after a stroke. I enjoy being being active, I exercise more, and can still feel happy by doing what I love in a relaxing way.
