Several years ago, a young police officer needed a creative outlet for artistic endeavors. While each day was bringing new challenges and humorous stories, something was still missing. Her mother, an enthusiastic bead-a-holic, had just come from a class where she had learned to make amazing pendants with natural stones and materials, as well as little sparkly jewels. One look at the rainbow of colors and our police officer was hooked. She realized she could make beautiful jewelry and help animals in need by donating a portion to local shelters as well. This is her story.
