I started creating when I was still in high school. It began as a reuse and recycle project for my Venture class. Off and on through high school, I played with jewelry but never really did much with it. In 2005, the church I was attending was trying to raise money for their building fund. I decided since I was doing pretty good at repairing my own personal jewelry that I could make jewelry too. I was right. Within the first week of making jewelry and selling as a fund raiser for the church, I raised about $367. After the first month, I raised just over $1,000. And from there, I began making jewelry in my spare time. In 2009, I opened my Esty store. I only had a few items posted and never developed it until April of this year. Currently, I have 77 items listed with more being added weekly and sometimes daily.
My most treasured possession would be my family. Without them, I would be completely lost. You never know how much having a family is important when you are single. When you receive that blessing, you can't imagine how you got along without it.
