How it All Begin and the Journey?
Now did I really begin ? It's all thanks to my grandmother! My grandmother is a Southern Belle. She believes that women should always wear a piece of jewelry, especially earrings. I use to get in trouble because I actually hated jewelry (I was a tom boy growing up). After I had my first child, I had to find ways to not fall into post partum because for her, I had to keep going. The solution was, make myself feel better not only on the inside, but outside too. So when I dress , I really dress even with matching jewelry. I eventually became to love jewelry.
As years went by, one Sunday I was bored, and I went to craft and home decor stores just browsing. Decorating and crafting has always been my passion. Well, I walked down the craft aisle for jewelry making and instantly loved the beads and started getting ideas. I wanted to start making my own jewelry. When I wore the set I made, I’ve gotten a lot of compliments and was asked if I was a designer, my response – No. One person says after my response, “ You should be.”
I thought about it and started taking tutorial lessons. Maybe 3 weeks later, after I made my first set of jewelry, the “paint” begin to chip away. I started researching products that will never fade or wear away. The answer was gemstones ! I’ve started reading about their pureness, metaphysical , and healing properties. Then I discovered that they are mentioned throughout the Bible. My first reaction was, “ Wow! I get it Lord, I can’t run from it! This is what I’m called to do.” No matter what I do, my spiritual side keeps getting intertwined with what I do.
I’ve begin researching places that sells pure authentic gemstones and browsing the competition. I wanted mine to be unique and a different style. So my journey began! My goal is to keep improving and learning something new everyday!
I want people to share my passion, calling, and creativity! I always considered myself unique and different. I want men and women to feel unique. Let your individuality illuminate to the outside of you.
