My name is Amanda and I am a 29 year old transplant from South Florida to Southern Alabama. I have 5 years experience teaching, and always assumed I would be teaching well into retirement, but things change, who knows why. I am currently scouting for work, volunteering at the local Health Food Store (where the nice lady sells some of my jewelry) and will soon begin Volunteering at the local Elementary School.

I cross-stitched at a young age, began sewing, and then in high school I discovered beading my own jewelry. It started out of necessity, as jewelry for “plus-size” ladies is hard to find. Suddenly family members and friends wanted me to makes gifts for them to have and give. Now making jewelry has become my passion.

I have a store at Shophandmade

I live in Andalusia Alabama with my family, 13 birds, and 4 dogs.

    Wow, been having major beading block. Completely uninspired and not really happy about it either.
