Wednesday's Feature "Mango Gyrl Designs

Ask and ye shall receive! You guys wanted me to present more jewelry features and this will hopefully be the first of many!

"Mango Gyrl Designs"

I have always loved creating things. As a child I used to draw pictures with my Dad, he had a creative streak as well. As I grew up I was always doing some kind of craft, sewing, cross stitch, holiday crafts, home decorating etc. Then a friend and I were invited to a jewelry party to learn how to make jewelry. I almost didn’t go and at the last minute changed my mind. Here I am four years later with a passion for creating jewelry! There are so many possibilities with all the beautiful beads for sale. I love having someone give me a few details about what they are looking for and then let my creative thinking take over. The happiness I feel when someone looks at a piece of jewelry that is made just for them is such a fulfilling feeling, it makes it all worthwhile. I enjoy working with all different types of components but my favorites are swarovski crystal and natural stones. Up until a couple months ago I was only selling my jewelry at craft shows and an occasional jewelry party. I feel I am ready to start selling online and like the idea of not having to make so much at one time like you do for craft shows. I have opened a store on Etsy and also Shophandmade.com. I would like to have my own website eventually. I also started a blog so I could write about my jewelry creating from time to time and share with other jewelry artsians. I work full time as an Accounting Manager in upstate NY and share my life with my husband, two dogs and three parrots.

So what's on today's agenda? Hopefully a more positive rant than the past week, sales, walking, working, kid stuff, and a long nap!! Okay, the nap is just wishful thinking, but I can dream can't I??

Joyful Jeweler's!
