How Did I Start Making Jewelry?

By  | 


Sometimes the path in life we take just sort of pops up in front of us one day. I stumbled into the world of jewelry and beads. In high school, I was the macramé queen. Here’s a choker I still have from way back then. I also remember making earrings with cool mother-of-pearl fetish bird beads. Remember those?

Many years later, I happened to be at a rock show when I got the urge to make jewelry for holiday gifts. I saw all this beautiful gemstone jewelry at the show, and my husband suggested we buy some of it. In the typical crafter's mantra, I replied: “Hey, I can make that!”

And I did.
