We've been selling online since 2002 but I first started playing with beads in the late '70s and early '80s, making and selling all things macrame...from plant hangers to micro knotted jewelry. This was pre-internet (boy does that make me feel old! LOL!) so we displayed our work at arts and crafts shows throughout Ohio and lower Michigan.
Life got in the way...but I eventually returned to this love. Now we spend more time sourcing supplies than creating jewelry, but I still like to tie knots and string beads when I have the time. Jim has a variety of talents, including polymer clay and wire wrap. He is also the master of our inventory and order fulfillment system.
When I'm not working, you will find me walking and training dogs at SPCA where I am a volunteer. I luuuuuuuuuuuv dogs!
Thanks for stopping by!
