My name is Chrissy Jones. I am the Designer/Owner of Gifted Diva Accessories. My love and passion for creating jewelry did not show up until 2012. I believe it was always there because my mom is also an artist and used to sell her handmade jewelry many years ago. I have always liked wearing jewelry and most times don’t leave home without at least one piece of it on. Initially I began selling wholesale jewelry pieces. A co-worker, who liked the jewelry I wore, came to me and said that she wanted me to style her jewelry for a family function. She ended up not going to the function, I guess, which meant that I wouldn’t be styling her accessories.
While I was selling the mass produced jewelry, the passion for making the jewelry began to grow. I am self-taught through watching several Youtube videos and Pinterest posts. I have so many favorite pieces on my website. However, the one piece that sticks out the most is the Nefertiti memory wire bracelet made with hematite beads. The one piece of advice I have for aspiring entrepreneurs is simply to NEVER GIVE UP on YOUR PASSION, which at times can be extremely difficult to not do, but DON’T GIVE UP.
