My jewelry making career really started after the loss of my mother. My father gave me all of her boxes of beads that she had accumulated over the years. These boxes were filled to the brim with beads that were just beautiful to me. Those boxes of beads sat in my house calling me. The day I opened those boxes was the day I started exploring ideas of how to create something women would love. Every single Pendant I make has one of my mother's beads somewhere within. My mother used to make all of her own jewelry, not to sell but just for herself. The fondest memories I have of my mother was watching her sew all her clothes, as well as make her own jewelry.
The answer to that question is.... when I was a little girl, my favorite piece of jewelry was my interchangeable watch. I loved the way you could change the wrist band and the outline colors of the watch face. "Such a cool idea." With that in mind, I thought to myself "how can I create a necklace that interchanges giving women the versatility to own one chain and input different Pendants?" It took me a while to get my necklace idea to work. There were many obstacles, but I finally figured it out. I was then suddenly able to start making my pendants for myself, which quite amazingly branched out to receiving customers from all around the world.
In addition to my jewelry business, I worked at a very hectic restaurant which allowed me to wear my product and test its "durability" so to speak. I was petrified that the pendant would actually fall out and land in someone's food, but that never happened. I found that after running around this restaurant all night, my necklace remained in place. So from that moment on, I started making my necklaces to sell. This website plays a huge role in the progression of my business, and I look forward to meeting customers from near and far!
I cannot even begin to share with you the impact the business has had on my life. I've been able to leave the restaurant and solely put all my time into my jewelry. I always tell my sons (by the way I have 2), that if you can find something you love to do, it will never be considered a "job".
I realize how hard it is to purchase jewelry online, and that everyone loves to view the jewelry in person, so I try to upload the most high quality pictures that I possibly can, plus I've added videos to each product to help you even more. Most people who order my jewelry online say that it is much prettier in person. If you love the way the pendant looks online, I can assure you will love them even more when you receive your purchase in the mail. I make the pendants, design and create my own photos, and I absolutely love doing it. Do not hesitate to purchase, you have 14 days to return no questions asked if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase.
