I have been a crafter since college. I retired from 45 yrs of nursing in Jan 2015. Jewelry design & jewelry making started as a hobby about 14 yrs ago. Now that I have more time I have turned my hobby into a business. I use a large variety of materials for my jewelry but especially like turquoise, semi-precious stones, Southwest style, tropical colors, and sterling silver. Pieces are beaded on wires or cording and some integrate chain use. I love to create designs that can be converted and worn in different ways. One of my favorite parts of jewelrymaking is the required shopping! Picking out specific beads from bins is a lot of fun. Travel always includes bead hunting. Thankfully my husband is very patient, even when I go a LITTLE overboard. My husband, Paul, and I love to cruise for vacation. Hopefully the jewelry business will be able to create enough income so we can continue the fun cruises.
