One day years ago I met a co-worker in the hall and noticed the fabulous Azurite necklace she was wearing. I had always loved those stones and when she said she made it herself I thought “I could do that” and about 20 years later, I did. The rest is history. I’ve been designing and selling jewelry for about 10 years, with 8 years on the Ruby Lane site. Guess that means I’m a lifetime bead addict.
