Where do you live? I live in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan.
What inspires you as a designer-artist? After the passing of my mother in 2012 I started to macramé, as the time passed my style changed and now I work with macramé and components, as well as metal hearts and much with crystals.
What medium do you work with mostly? Mostly art and craft fairs, I did start an Etsy account.
Why did you become enchanted with this style of jewelry-making? The sport style was my first interest, but I enjoy the mixed metals and the crystals.
Where and How do you sell your jewelry? My Etsy account was just opened and not selling at all.
What is the name of the piece you submitted with your success story? The Nadia
What inspired this design? I have named my bracelets after people in my life that have impacted me. The Nadia is using the heart crystals and my favorite. The Kimberly is a favorite of many, the Nadia is just mine.
How did it come together? Using the Swarovski crystals was always my favorite but this heart took a while to come together for me, incorporating Swarovski into macramé was the challenge. I also put charms that I make from your crystals.
