Thank you Kayla! I received the beautiful bracelet today (very fast shipping). I was going to give it to my niece, but I think I need to keep this one for myself. I'm wearing it right now. You did a very nice job designing it and your packaging and note were great. The quote by Gandhi is one of my favorites :)

About

It all worked together to come to this point!

It all started with black seed beads, a handful of different glass beads, a few charms and some stretchy cord. With that simple combination a lifelong passion for creating jewelry was established and nearly 7 years later is stronger and more fulfilling than ever!

When I initially got sick at the young age of 14 years old, one teacher in particular took me under her wing because she, too, knew what it was like to be chronically ill. I will be forever in her debt; she was the one who introduced me to the art of creating jewelry at one of her support group meetings.

With only a simple Beading 101 class under my belt taken years ago, I'm self taught with what I'm able to do thus far and am growing every single day!

Due to my circumstances I can't really afford the best of the best when it comes to materials; with that in mind, I scour thrift stores, garage sales and the internet for inexpensive and unique beads and objects to upcycle and incorporate into my designs.

And you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way!

All of this came into play years after I initially learned the trade. Because of the fact that I can't work, one day I had an idea: If I couldn't go out into world and get a job, I'd create one myself! With the help of Etsy and encouragement from loved ones, my idea blossomed into The Eclectic Element: Handcrafted!
