I am pleased to announce that this week's featured studio is "Royal Designs" aka Holly.
Although beading can be a very time consuming, quite thought provoking, and also a frustrating endeavor, Holly admits that she really just loves it. She is "driven" to continue to work on a new creation until she feels that it is perfect in her eyes. There have been a number of times when she has just stopped working on a new piece because she just can't find the right "rthym", but thank goodness this rarely happens. Holly truly feels that she will not offer anything for sale unless she loves it and would wear it herself. Well, kudos to you darlin'.
Holly has been designing jewelry since she was a teenager which I really find amazing. She worked in a local store making necklaces out of plastic beads. Well, she certainly has come a long way since those plastic bead creations. Holly's jewelry designs are now made up of Swarovski and Czech crystals, semi precious stones, Swarovski crystal pearls, freshwater pearls, sterling silver, gold vermeil, and more. She takes pride in always informing her prospective customers of all the materials that are used in a jewelry piece that she has made.
Holly happens to be quite a busy lady. Besides creating awesome pieces of jewelry she is the mother of two children who are both in college and she has 4 "fur" babies. She works full time but would love to be sucessful enough to bead all the time.
Holly was an art major in college where she learned all about colors and patterns which she uses in each piece that she creates. In short, Holly puts lots of time, effort, and love in every piece that she makes.
