Get to Know

I have an insatiable need to create. I love the process of designing something special and unique. My husband teases that I get lost in my own world when I am involved with a project.

I also need a higher purpose for what I spend my time doing. As I am working with my hands, twisting wire, pouring resin, placing each bead, knitting, sewing, I pray blessings over the woman who will receive it.

I have owned a medical transcribing small home business since 1995 and I really love it, but the times, they are a'changin'. Doctors are moving on to Electronic Medical Records. I love designing jewelry so I am excited to be able to spend more time with Catbangles.

A friend once said I could make beautiful jewelry out of hubcaps. Well, I have never tried using hubcaps, but I do like making something new out of found items, including natural elements (real acorn caps covered in resin is my latest adventure!)

Catbangles is truly a family endeavor!

My son, Bryan, came up with putting the necklace on the cat in my logo and the slogan, "You're already beautiful; we make you sparkle!" He is such a wonderful young man. I am blessed to have him in my life!

My husband, Ed, is my helper at events and encourages me in every way. He is my soul mate.

You will find me most Saturdays 9-2 March through November at the Tallahassee Downtown Marketplace (Park & Monroe). Come stroll under the magnificent oak trees, enjoy live music, and shop local artists.

Catbangles jewelry can also be found in specialty shops in Tallahassee, FL, Havana, FL, and Thomasville, GA, and at the Florida Society of Goldsmiths Gallery.
