Isn't this Onyx Necklace just beautiful....I would say so as I have a soft spot for Onyx Jewelry. Here's a little more about the creator:
~"I have always loved creating things. I find joy and satisfaction if by the end of the day I have something tangible or visual that I can say I made:) ~"As a child I was always making something and then attempting to either sell it at a garage sell or by soliciting our neighbors! My mother about died when she found out that I had been going door to door trying to sell a facial concoction of baby powder and baby oil to our neighbors.
~"So needless to say, I have always had the desire to be self employed and utilize the creative abilities that God has given me. I'm just glad I didn't go into the business of creating cosmetics:)
~"While I love drawing and painting I have become enamored with creating jewelry. It is such a creative outlet. What I find most appealing about jewelry making is that I can keep up with it. Paintings take so much longer and I usually have a sketchbook of ideas and lots of unfinished pieces. With jewelry, as soon as an idea pops into my head I can go into my craft room and come out with something new! It's just very rewarding.
~"I also love the graphic design aspect of my business. I love designing banners, logos, pamphlets, you name it! Nothing excites me more than printed materials. I know it's crazy but I love the crispness of designs and the way it looks on paper:)
~"I'm married and have 3 cats:)
~"Having my own business is often a challenge but it is so rewarding! I wouldn't trade my little business in for any job in the world. I love what I do and thank God everyday for giving me the means to fulfill my dream:)."
