About

Visions and Dreams do come true

I have always loved to create and solve problems. As a child, I helped my father with his business (hanging Sheetrock and refurbishing houses). When I turned 10, I started sewing. I first thought to be an architect, but I loved the feel of fabric and would spend hours in the fabric store. Although I loved fabric, I choose to get a degree in Data Processing, which eventually led me to becoming a Network Engineer and Help Desk manager. After retiring in 2002, I decided to return to creating beautiful pieces with my hands. I had been making jewelry since 1990 and decided to start my tailoring business . As the business grew, I needed a venue for my jewelry designs and by GOD's grace, I met someone who told me about Etsy. It has been great, I am able to sell my creations to people from all over the world.

I am so excited to have this store and now I am adding my fashion designs. I am so blessed to be able to share my gift of creating with everyone, it is so rewarding to have others appreciate my creations.

    I am following my dream. I enjoy making jewelry and couture clothing. Etsy has allowed me to offer my creations to a greater audience. My kids are grown and moving on with their lives, so I have many hours to fill with fabric, beads and sweet tea.

JEWELRY CARE:

Jewelry should lay flat for storage, this reduces the stress on the connections.

If your piece contains natural stones or pearls, remember put your fragrance on first and allow to dry before putting on jewelry (this prevents damage to stones/pearls). Do not place in direct sunlight for storage. If the pearls are hand-knotted and worn regularly, they should be checked yearly for fraying and re-strung as needed.

If your piece contains Swarovski crystals, the same attention to storage, sunlight and fragrance should be applied.

If your piece contains copper, it may be cleaned with a soft cloth, salt and lemon juice or ketchup. Rub in gently, this will remove the tarnish. I personally like the aged look, it's cool.

Do not clean your natural stones using jewelry cleanser or an ultrasonic machine, it can cause damage.


My thanks to all my customers, your support allows me to design and created the ideas that are in my head.

To GOD be the Glory and Thanks,

Duchess
