Your story in one sentence.

My shop is all about the passion I have for designing jewelry. I love to help my customers preserve a precious memory or an important event in their lives with a special piece of wearable art. I love Swarovski pearls and crystals, wire of all types, and metal stamping.

I am so proud and grateful to be the owner of Meant2Bead! By making my passion my career, I am able to get closer to creating a work/life balance that is more in line with what's important - quality time with my husband and son, pursuing my passions, and helping others! I want to live a purposeful life, and as a business owner, I am the captain. I still experience the daily juggling act of life, but I couldn't be any happier personally or professionally!

Please remember your custom piece of jewelry is created by hand. I am not a factory ... I am only one person designing, creating, emailing, packing and shipping orders. It is only ME and I LOVE IT ! I am always here and here to help with any questions. Thanks for your understanding and patience :)
