A look behind the scenes:
Executive assistant by day, sister with a crafty soul by night. I've always been involved with some sort of art or craft. Growing up, my brother and I spent most of our allowance on crayons and construction or tracing paper. I knitted little sweaters and sewed little dresses for my Barbie Dolls, and much later, made some of my maternity clothes and some of my baby daughter's clothing as well (some 28 years ago!). I haven't left the house with naked ears since I was 12. Sporting a small afro and a fairly flat chest at the time, I wanted to make sure people knew I was a girl so I wore the biggest hoops I could find. :-) I started making earrings early last spring and fell in love with the craft. I have no formal training; I just make what I like to wear and what I think others will enjoy as well.
