IT'S ALL ABOUT ME!

Let me tell you a little about me. I live in Florida, near the Space Center. I have been married to a retired Air Force man for the past 41 years. We have 2 grown sons, one who lives near us with his family and one who lives in Tennessee with his family. I am a retired Colorist and Stylist who has since become a jewelry designer..
I started jewelry design about 3 years ago after going to a jewelry party. I looked at every piece and then the prices and after some thought, I came to the conclusion that it couldn't be so hard to make those pieces that I liked at a much more affordable price. So, a trip to the local jewelry supply store took place. And then a class or two. By then, I was hooked on learning every type of jewelry design... I fell in love with Wire Wrapping the minute I saw it. And so I took a class in that. And found what I really wanted to pursue...
I have gone from simple Wire Wrapping to designing my own pieces with techniques I have come up with on my own. I do a form of free form Wire Wrapping that I have not seen done by anyone else so far...
I opened a shop on Etsy last year in December. Since then, I have sold some great pieces and made some great friends... I hope you will take a moment to visit my shop at www.Etsy.com/people/PersonalDesignz
On my site you will find examples of my work and hopefully it will intice you to go to my shop and make it yours. I also do custom work, taking stones and resetting them into new pieces or just making a piece that you want made just because it is something you want...
I hope to be starting some new designs soon and come up with some ideas that are still floating around in my head. It is very rewarding to come up with an idea that when finished gets many compliments from others. That makes a designer feel very good. To know that other people think their jewelry designs are beautiful. We love what we design but are never sure how others will feel about that piece when it is complete.
