I'm a graphic designer by trade, so designing my website was more fun than anything. If you visit my site often, you'll find that I tend to change things up constantly. In this respect, do not be surprised if the website looks different every time you stop by.
Unfortunately, my jewelry making career really started after the loss of my mother. In effort to find anything that withholds a memory of my mother, I came across her boxes of beads that she had. Not to mention these boxes were filled to the brim, with beads that denoted pure beauty and elegance. 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 that 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 work at a very hectic restaurant that 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 that this business has had on my life. The website is the hardest part, but creating the pendants is the most enjoyable. I always tell my sons (by the way I have 2 they are both in college), 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. I do have a video on my website which you can view right here SEE VIDEO , so you can get an idea of the size and quality of my work. 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 it 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 it no questions asked if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase.
