Tell us about your business.At the beginning of 2010 after a lengthy illness in my family, I decided to immerse myself into a life long passion of creating Art. I have painted, sculpted but decided to try wire wrapping beads into necklaces and bracelets & Earrings as I did not want to create a mess and wanted to try a new medium to experiment with. Most of my pieces are made from antique copper chains, headpins, sterling silver and 14 k gold filled headpins wire wrapped around glass beads, precious chips, beads, spacer beads and other gem materials. I start with a combination of colors and shapes that I think will be interesting. I also choose the chains, headpins and create a cluster design. The Clasp is always one-of-a-kind and the focal point of each design. I see my business evolving by showing at craft shows, museum shops and other venues. I would like my pieces displayed on covers of Art Jewelry Magazines, Art Books Instructional, Web Instruction and Gem Shows Across the Country.
What makes your business stand out?My pieces are unique. There is nothing else in luxury handmade jewelry industry for the woman who has everything. The colors, boldness and the imaginative way to display gemstones to highlight their beauty and the woman who wears it.
