I'm a happily married, fiftysomething woman with 2 grown children, 1 daughter-in-law and no grandchildren (yet!). I love making jewelry which I was introduced to by a friend. I make simple designs using Swarovski Crystals, semi precious gem stones, glass beads, and handmade beads by a few of my favorite artists. I love color, which is what attracts me to the Swarovski Crystals. I enjoy creating and even though my designs are simple, I put a lot of love and time into my jewelry.
I also like to make keychains and bookmarks with my beads and sometimes I make my own creation, called Hang-Its. I've also been know to make bear bells from time-to-time.
I'm disabled from working a regular job by Lupus. I can't really take up jewelry making as a job either, but if I can make enough to buy more supplies I'm a happy person.
Besides my jewelry making, I like to promote Lupus Awareness, Promote Help for the Hungry, work on my family genealogy, read, and when I'm feeling really good ride on the motorcycle with my husband and do a littly geocaching.
Life is really good and I want to live it the best I can!!
