My Story

I'm a simple girl from a small town in Ohio living in a beautiful coastal town in Florida. I'm married to my very supportive high school sweetheart and we have a beautiful cat, Hula. I studied interior design in college and after several career reincarnations I am now here, living the unexpected life of jewelry designer and absolutely LOVING it!!! This blog chronicals my journey through this wild and exhilarating and sometimes exasperating world of jewelry making from idea to fruition!

Update: Here we are 6 years later and I'm very happy to report that things are going well! I have a thriving shop on Etsy, my own website, I show occasionally at local art/craft shows, and my work is now available at Old Florida Gallery and Outdoor Center in Englewood FL! So follow along... it's getting very interesting!

Holiday Wish List Service...

This is a free and easy service I'm offering this holiday season so you can receive the gifts you want instead of another ugly sweater you'll never wear!  It's simple, visit my Etsy shop SSMDesign ~ Jewelry Personified or Facebook page and send me a message with the item(s) you love from my shop and the name and email address(s) of the person(s) you'd like your "wish list" to go to and I'll send an official email to each person : ) (THE NAMES AND EMAIL ADDRESSES PROVIDED WILL BE USED FOR THIS PURPOSE ONLY!!! Your loved ones will not receive spam or further communications from me unless otherwise requested!!!)
