“I live in Joliet,with my husband. I have three awesome adult children and a daughter-in-law ,who always amaze me in fantastic ways. I live with two dogs & two cats, who think they are the boss of me. They are right.
One day I was with my sister and we were shopping and we walked into a little bead shop. I was in awe of all the shapes and sizes and rainbow of colors. I had no idea such a place existed. I had never thought of it before. I was mesmerized. I got excited and decided I was going to try to make some jewelry for my children as gifts. At first I picked up some packs of ready to make kits. I soon decided they were too limited, so I went back to the shop and picked out my own varieties and colors. I was hooked!
It took me a while to get confident in my designs, but soon I was making jewelry for friends and family as a hobby. I have always heard that it’s not work, if you’re doing something you love. Well it’s still work 🙂 , but I do love it!”
