Howdy, my name is Kirsten. I'm married to a wonderful man named Bryan and I have four incredible children. Grace is 12, Faith is 10, Hope is 8 and Eli is 6. We also have a dog named Rocky, two guinea pigs Prince Pig and Whiskers, and a rat named Leelu. We also have two betta fish. I'm a stay at home mom. In additon to beading I love to cook, read, and garden. I'm a crafty person in general, the only thing I haven't gotten into is scrapbooking. I love the outdoors and I like going on walks. I love water in any form, beach, lake, pond, river, brook, and even the bathtub! As long as it doesn't go on for days I even like rain.

I wear casual stuff most of the time, but I do get dressed up more for church and sometimes our date night every week. I'm still building my jewelry collection. Being a stay at home mom and just now coming out of the stage where it's dangerous to wear jewelry LOL, I don't have much.
I'm finding I like any kind of metal. I used to lean towards gold, but now wear lots of silver and I really love copper, brass and others too now. I'm up for any kind of material, crystals, glass, gemstones, resin, wood, bone, anything really. I'm a woman of many moods and I like to match my jewelry to my mood. So I love fun and funky jewelry that gets attention and I also like simple understated things and classy or sophisticated. I am finding that I like things with movement, things that dangle or sway. I don't have any metal allergies, I have so far been able to wear anything, even the cheap base metals cause no problems for me, even in ear wires!
Some stuff I have a particular fondness for - cats, butterflies, owls, hearts, things to do with water, and anything christian. There aren't any colors I don't like. I do like multi-colored things or mixes of one color. I've lost a lot of weight so my wardrobe is changing, so really anything goes now. Heck, I can even shop for clothes to match my jewelry now LOL.
***Earring info*** the only issue is that I've got big honkin ear lobes LOL. Leverback ear wires usually squish my lobes. Even some of the smaller fish/french hook earrings don't sit right on my ears. But, that's always an easy fix so don't sweat it much.
***Bracelet info*** my wrist measures 7 inches. I don't like snug bracelets unless it's on stretchy cord so 7.5 inches is a good length.
***Necklace info*** needs to be at least 18 inches. I don't have many necklaces, but it seems I either wear a shorter one between 18-20 inches or a much longer one.
