I must confess that I haven't always been a fan of jewelry. In fact for the last 15 or so years I've worn a watch and class ring and swapped that out for my wedding ring 13 years ago. Jewelry and hair styles were "too much work!" Bracelets would get in my way when working and earrings got caught in my naturally curly hair. Uggh!
Then in February of this year (2010) I was diagnosed with stage 1 melanoma on my hand. Talk about terror! My father died of melanoma when I was 8 months old and I had always tried to be careful in the sun. Well, long story short, It was successfully cut out and now I go every 6 months for check-ups.
At the same time as that diagnoses, I received test results of food allergens. I was severely allergic to rice. Rice! Whose allergic to rice? I love rice! Why rice! What do I eat now??? So I changed my diet and MIRACLE of MIRACLES, I came out of my suicidal depression that had been hanging over me for years!!!!! Whoo hooo!! Life is beautiful!! Cancer free, Depression free, Youthful energy restored!!!
Then, wait for it............I found jewelry! I love it! I make it! I'm actually good at it! Whoo hooo again! So here are my uniquely designed jewelry pieces. Each one is a new expression of uniqueness. So, go ahead, enjoy! I dare you to walk on the fun side!
