I'm a self-taught jewelry designer residing in Dacula, GA. I started beading about 4 years ago and was hooked on this craft when I discovered how I could twist, bend and manipulate sterling wire to make components. From there I moved into resin, metal embossing and rubber stamping to create mixed media style designs. I'm drawn to semi-precious stones, crystals, sterling silver, brass, copper, leather, fibers and clay in my work. "Manic Diva" evolved into the name of the business to describe the varied eclectic nature of my pieces: pendants, rings, earrings and bracelets. In addition, I've also been selling my designs at arts & crafts shows, home parties and local markets.
