My name is Donna and I am from West Chester, Ohio a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. I am retired. I found this site in 2012. I retired in May 0f 2013. But, I just have started to be able to design and make jewelry. Like most of you, I have elderly parents that drained me of my creative spirit. Now, my Mother, who is almost 90, is in a long term facility. So, the time has finally come to make some jewelry. I aspire to hone this craft and find my focus in designing. I would love to have a shop on Etsy like most of you. This site and all of you help me every day to make my life transition. Thanks to you all.
