I started crocheting at a very early age and later started making jewelery in 1998. I had gone to some retail stores looking for a specific type of earring to match an outfit I was going to wear. If I saw the style I didn’t see the colour and vice versa. As it always goes, when you look for something while shopping you can’t find it! I was frustrated and thought “if only…” The next day I found myself at a jewellery supply store and started experimenting. As fate would have it, many friends and family members commented and asked to have some my creations made for them. The rest as they say is history!!
I’ve always been artistic, but never claimed it. I can’t pinpoint any one thing that led me down this path. However, I can say that I love colour, texture, and boldness. I love the way that a simple accessory can totally change an outfit whether it be dressed up or down.
All of my pieces are 100% handmade. I have a deep love for beads, but don’t shy away from mixing and matching media.
Don’t let fear stop you from fulfilling your dream. Do NOT be your own roadblock in thinking that you can’t do something. Try and don’t be afraid to fail because guess what? If you fail, you can try again! Lastly, do not be afraid of your impending success. Make sure you are ready to embrace it because it will come when you least expect it!!
