I'm a teacher's aide at an elementary school, and I love finding new designs to show the girls. They absolutely love them. I give them as gifts as often as I can. Obviously I love purple, and paisleys....and always love jewelry that incorporates either (or hopefully both) of these elements. I do lots of different crafts, but in "spurts". I'll do friendship bracelets for a while, then I'll go to crocheting, then to beaded jewelry making.....and sooner or later it'll change again. Now I'm getting my daughter into bracelet making by teaching her how to do it. We have sooo much fun!
