I have to sides to myself. One is the very domesticated elementary school teacher which I love. Then the other is my artistic side which always has something brewing. I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts in graphic design. I worked about 7 yrs in graphics but it was too much of sitting behind a computer and I’m a hands on kinda gal. Then I went back to school to get my certification and a masters degree in elementary ed. With that said, I always have my hand in something artistic; I have to be creative all of the time! Right now, creatively speaking, I am jewelry making and I love it! I’m an instant gratification person and with jewelry making that part of me is fulfilled. You can start a piece of jewelry and within 1-3 hours it is done! Then, you have a great piece of jewelry to wear out!I have had a lot of positive feedback with my designs – now I’m trying to take it to the next level…so we will see! Thanks for visiting my site here at Lima Beads….which I love by the way!
