Personal

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.

    The Nunn design necklaces I love too. I love doing resin and love all of Nunn components. They are so well made. When I saw the inspiration of Nunn designs using the black and white with copper. I just loved that. To me, the combination is pleasing to the eye. I signed up for Nunn’s blog [...]

    Just wanted to say that fantastic little Czech bead I was talking about was a matte Jet AB round 6mm, #24750. When I saw that bead I knew I had my combination of beads to make the Dragon necklace. Because I knew I wanted to do something different with the Dragon pyrite pendant, the blue that [...]

    Moogie is right. The sparkly grey beads are druzy. The bead that looks blue was a Czech bead that was featured on LB that prompted me to color the pendant in the Dragon necklace. Moogie, yes, I think that focal is chrysocolla, but I am not sure. One of those stones I picked up. Thank you [...]

    Annabel, not only is your etching so nice, but your explanation of your process was supper. Sorry, you had such a nasty flu. Glad you are feeling better. I would miss you on this blog. You are so kind and generous!

    Donna, what happened to your picture icon? I don’t see your little Pom anymore. I enjoyed seeing him. Hope it’s not my tablet–I’ve been trying to post comments with it rather than the desktop. Take care, Crystal

    Hope you get this. I just got back home after 2 1/2 weeks. My aunt is much better & happily settled in a well-run Catholic nursing home. I have a ton of beading stuff to put away! Hope things get better with your mom’s situation. Prayers for you ❤️

    Janet, I am back. Just a lot of draining stuff with the death of my Father and my Mother diving deeper into her dementia. Trying to help my Sisters emotionally. My Mom has taken out her anger on them. Anyway, I am more driven to do what makes me happy. I am shooting to have an Etsy shop like you. I check your shop often and always love all of your pieces. Don’t focus on the amount you sell right now but what is selling and expand on that. I read that somewhere! LOL You are doing great! Your friend Donna P.S. I have got to check for messages. S O R R Y!
