A little about me....long story short I never gave up on a dream of mine to be a published jewelry designer. That dream became a reality when I was published in both Jewelry Stringing and Bead Trends simultaneously in the Winter of 2011. I love creating and inspiring others to do the same!
My journey to this point started in 1999. With two little kids at home I decided to create a birthday card for a family member instead of going to the grocery store with the kids. With a background in Art I figured it would be an easy task. The card turned out beautiful and after all the compliments I started creating note cards and custom made invitations. Roxi Designs was born!
Somewhere along the way creating note cards evolved into creating jewelry. My cards and first bracelet designs were sold in 3 shops across the country. I took a break for many years until 'the kids' were teens. Until one day, in 2010, when I decided I was going to start creating earrings!
After purchasing beading supplies, I sat down every Sunday Night and starting creating my 'Sunday Night Earrings' and posting them online. After they all sold I kept creating earrings and gathered my best pieces and submitted them to a couple magazines. To my surprise both magazines accepted my submissions! I'm so glad I never gave up and took a chance on a dream! -Roxi
