I am a wife, mom, and a registered nurse to the community. I am also a self taught jewelry artist that was inspired to take up jewelry design after my father taught me the 'basics' of bead stringing in 1999. I was HOOKED! After my daughter was born in 2005, I found that jewelry design became a necessity to get us through our first Christmas holiday season by making jewelry as gifts for family and friends! One of those friends worked at our local county health department, and soon the jewelry orders started to fly in. I was then commissioned by the WIC department at the same health department to create a piece of jewelry for their breastfeeding clinic......and a business was born! I found Etsy through a postcard my mother picked up at an art show. I opened my Etsy account in March of 2008, but did not list my first item until September 2, 2008! Cold feet I guess! I also started my blog in March of 2008. This blog is committed to showcasing my work, featuring other artists, promoting Etsy, offering parenting information, and ALL about trying to have fun in the process!
