Back in 2019 my best friend Becky drove up to visit from Southern California. She used to make beaded jewelry, but is now concentrating on making beautiful specialty quilts. She asked if I would like to have her beading supplies and I said yes. I was mesmerized by all of the beautiful beads and was instantly hooked. After spending the first year learning how to make jewelry by studying everything I could get my hands on I settled into my style and decided it was time to start selling my creations! The next thing was to come up with a name. I decided on a name that is in honor of my beloved Grandmother. Her proper name was Sonora Jane, but to us she was Grandma Jane. It wasn't until I was a young teenager before I realized I was named after my Grandma Jane with the modern version of Susan Jane. Grandma was very fond of brightly colored jewelry and clothing. She inspires me to create beautiful products for my customers!
What Do I Make?
I like to make one of a kind statement necklace sets, various styles of bracelets, and earrings. I also have started a line of trinkets that includes mask lanyards, bookmarks, purse/keychain charms, beaded plant stakes, and various beaded ornaments.
Future plans include classes, project kits and bead club memberships.
