Candy Jewels

What a great title! I love it and am so grateful for Yazmin's feature on her blog A Pretty Rock.

We both have something in common - we are both self-taught artists. This is something I can relate to as well as admire. I hope you enjoy her post as much as I do!

A Pretty Rock
Handcrafted Limited Edition Jewelry
My name is Yazmin. I've always been an artsy-crafty person, but it seems like I just moved into jewelry unintentionally. In 2004, I went to the Yellow Daisy Festival for the umpteenth time and found a pair of beautiful hair chopsticks with beaded ends. I wore them for about a month straight! They were a true obsession. I spent a lot of time thinking about the chopsticks and how to make my own. This led me to local stores like Michael's and Joann's, but it also led me to several boutique bead shops... Many gemstones and wire later and here I am! Heaven help me when the crafting wind finally takes me in a different direction. ;)
