Where it all began..HAAA

 

Jewelry has always been a part of me! In the 90s, I wore multiple necklaces, thick herringbone chains and sterling silver rings on almost every finger! My mother has a friend who owns a jewelry store that I loved  to visit as a little girl. My mother also wore a lot of jewelry back then and would buy me sterling silver pieces when she went to visit and shop at her friend's store. I have still visited with her friend for over 20 years and really owe my inspiration to have my own jewelry store from Ms. Sam, Owner & Silversmith at Sterling Studios in Dayton, OH!

As a creative, I am like most, a busy body, finding it hard to sit still lol! Beading jewelry became a relaxation hobby for me in 2009, when Gemstone beaded bracelets were trending and became my new favorite! My sister and I became partners in a side hustle, (I am a serial entrepreneur) Sisters Sugar Beads! vending at local events in and around our community from 2010-2013.

 

I came back to beading & jewelry designing in 2017 solo as a self care regimen, and at the request of some of our faithful customers! I have since found my passion in designing handmade bracelets, necklaces, earrings and other self care, self love affirming items!

My work is an outlet for relaxing, relieving stress, depression, anxiety and helping others by sharing my healing journey. It is my hope to assist my target market with feeling UNIQUE, ENLIGHTENED and SPECIAL through my jewelry customization! I promise to deliver all that character, SASS & CLASS in each custom handmade piece!
