MARYBEADZ - Featured Artist on Artfully Crafted Chronicals™
"I opened up my Etsy shop in Febuary 2010, I make beaded jewelry and accessesories. I am fairly new to making jewelry, I worked as a physician assistant full time for several years. I loved my work I was fortunate to have worked in some very challenging areas of medicine and met some wonderful people along the way. It wasn't until I became ill myself that i started beading. It turned from hobby to now business.
I enjoy learning and trying new designs, I'm currently working on personalized metal stamping jewelry which I'm really enjoying.
I am not much of a computer person so I had to learn all about facebook and fanpages as well as twitter and now my own blog. I never thought i would actually be doing this and learning all these new things but you never know where life will take you. I have 2 children,( 23,21) and a wonderful husband. I love to cook and bake, listen to Dave Matthews band, strong supporter of USMC (my son is a marine).
