“Crazed mother of four with a slight beading problem who sometimes likes to cook…

I taught myself the art beading after my grandmother passed away more than 20 years ago. She had left me with a large collection of stunning costume jewelry. The individual beads were beautiful but the pieces were outdated. Looking at the beads and clasps, I decided to rework the pieces and got myself hooked on the design and the art of beading.

Fast forward a few years…and I am surrounded by an incredible collection (think hoarder) of beads! As a bead enthusiast, I have continued my quest for beads by perusing estate sales and flea markets. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning! I also collected many beads during the years I spent living in Africa.

I had put my beads away for a few years but after losing my job, I decided to start beading again and in 2009 I moved my jewelry shop, Clairanna Designs to it’s new online home at Etsy. In 2010, I opened The Dangle Diva as a way to give new life to the last handful of beads leftover from many completed jewelry projects. Little did I know how fast and furious The Dangle Diva would grow. With over 9800 sales, I am exhausted at times but loving every minute of it.”
