The stones were authentic and iridescent from this shop. Unfortunately, I've bought this from other people and the stones were cheap and not as 'rainbow' like! This is the real deal so I'm buying it again for a friend! - Hugs, Audrie

Obsession Confession . . .

I am irresistibly drawn to jewelry ... pretty much always have been.

My skills were honed creating paper chains, cheerios bracelets and macaroni necklaces. Got creative with colored mini-marshmallows strung together to form pretty pastel designs, and even used crayons to color tiny pebble "beads" collected during a family beach vacation.

As a 12 year old, I loved to go through my mom's costume jewelry. And how much fun was it to watch her get ready for a night out? That final stage of adding the special touch -- jewelry, was the very best part!

When a teenager, I experimented with the pieces she no longer used, taking jewelry apart to create something new and better. I called it "design and refine", and I have to admit that there were times I didn't confine the creative process to only the things she'd cast off. It didn't take long for her to come looking for Jill every time she couldn't find her newer jewelry. But she soon got over her annoyance, as she'd be the hit of the bridge club or PTA with my one-of-a-kind creations! I kept hoping to see an increase in my allowance, but no such luck ッ

Now it's such a pleasure to choose exactly the materials I want to use, without being confined to recycling my mom's beads. But I wouldn't change those initial seeds of inspiration for anything!

After getting a business degree with a major in Retailing, I joined a high-end department store and worked my way up to Buyer . . . and guess what department it was? Fashion and Bridge Jewelry. Fate❣

Traveling for Buying trips, over time I managed to collect an amazing personal stash of vintage beads, but that's a story for another time.

mind ... use only the finest components available to create a long-lasting piece of jewelry you'll love to wear!
