I’ve always loved jewelry, beads and beautiful colors. As a child growing up, my father traveled for his job and we were fortunate as a family to be able to travel as well. I remember getting some of my favorite pieces from these trips: An Ivory necklace from Barbados, a Faberge egg pendant from Russia, a beaded Indian necklace from a small country store in Virginia.
In college I began my career path in Speech/Language Pathology which gave me the opportunity to work with the most amazing children. I was fortunate enough for 10 years to do something meaningful and that I loved. I worked with children with autism, developmental disabilities and severe speech disorders to help design communication systems for them to navigate their daily lives.
Then came my own children and I took a hiatus from work to stay at home. Once entrenched in the “mom thing” I began to look for outlets for my creativity and a way to keep my brain active.
As I developed my skills and expanded my interested I fell in love with metals, hand stamping and having the freedom to personalized pieces.
My line of GEEK DECREE hand stamped leather cuffs were created where you are free to be yourself. I love these leather cuffs and bracelets, because they allow you to express your feelings, state what makes you proud, or profess love in a permanent way.
I love creating personalized messages for others. Please contact me if you have something worthy to say.
