of Stoned and Charming
It all started over 20 years ago in a Cracker Barrel Gift Shop somewhere in North Florida. My charming Father agreed to buy me a friendship bracelet kit and I was hooked for life.
Since then, I made jewelry in some form or another throughout the years. It wasn't until I decided to get lost and get broke in foreign countries that the passion for making really started to burn. I had slowly started collecting charms and trinkets from one country to the next making small bracelets and charm gifts to fellow travelers, trading mementos for memories. While living in Korea, I found myself nearing the end of my funds for the 1026th time when another traveler told me about a place where I could buy jewelry making supplies. It was there, at the amazing 4-story Busan-Jin Market that I spent the last of my loot and hit the beaches gypsy style hoping for the best.
Bless the Koreans and their appreciation for handmade art.
Over time. my inventory grew as did my skill and talent for it and it quickly consumed me. I managed to finance myself for almost 2 more years wandering abroad before coming home right when the Artist Markets were taking off.
Today, Im blessed enough to do what I love full time and I feel like the luckiest gal in the world! I couldn't be more grateful for what this journey and all those a part of it have taught me! Thank you and stay charming! xo
