My mom and I started making jewelry independent of one another about three years ago. We decided to go into business together the summer of 2008, and we've never looked back! heartsabustin is a wonderful, two-woman team, and we truly love what we do. We make a wonderful and eclectic variety of jewelry, and my mom has vintage radar in her forehead, I swear. She has an amazing selection of vintage jewelry in our shop as well as her own handcrafted pieces. I'm the polymer clay guru on the team - any PC pieces you see were made by me. My next foray will be into precious metal clay - I just ordered the start-up kit from Fire Mountain just this past week (December 31, 2009!), and I can't wait to get it! Please feel free to contact me - I love to talk about jewelry!
