As a creative outlet, I started learning to make beaded jewelry in 2010 after moving to Texas. I opened Mingling with Beads in March 2011. A month later, I started learning how to make wire jewelry and added it to my shop. I continue to learn new modalities of jewelry and accessory making to this day. I love making fun things when the whim strikes me. It's a fabulous hobby!!
I have gotten more purpose these days. Helping others in their everyday life with things such as color therapy, crystals, and stones have become a point of creativeness for me in many ways including jewelry.
My most fun projects are making crowns with different themes!! Unicorns, mermaids, steampunk, fairies, and so much more!! Other newer jewelry making modalities I'm learning currently are leather working and metal clay. Who knows where the creative wind will take me next!!
