Get to Know

I was the kind of child that delighted in anything crafty, although I've always preferred to learn by experimentation rather than by following detailed instructions. My interest in jewelry-making, in particular, took off when I saw a pair of earrings in an up-scale store and said âEURoeI know I can do that!âEUR so instead of making the purchase at the store I went to a craft store and purchased a starter bead kit and I was hooked. I got a taste of fabrication techniques and filled my free time with beading since it could be done anywhere without specialized tools. I ended up making the jewelry I wanted for me and I would have extra beads and things left so I would make up extras and just put them in a bag. After a while people would stop me and ask where I got this or that. I finally just kept the bag in my car where ever I went. I always had my âEURoestoreâEUR with me.

Later, Designs by Deonna was born when I realized that it didn't make sense to design and create jewelry and then store it in a bag forever. I want other people to enjoy it, too. My collection of tools and techniques has grown considerably since I started, and I'm still expanding my repertoire.
