Hey there fellow jewelry makers & coffee lovers!  I have loved coffee since I was in 4th grade (a very long time ago). I fell in love with jewelry making over 20 years ago.  Why not combine the two and have a great, caffeinated and beady good time?!

Okay….about me.  My favorite tagline for myself is “I make no claims to sanity”.  I am a stay-at-home, entrepreneur mama. I love green in all of her various shades.  I crave sushi almost all the time as well as M&Ms. I once made the mistake of having a bowl of M&Ms on my workbench near a bowl of multicolored beads.  Well, I think you can just imagine what happened.

I love coffee. I also love to cook. I enjoy family time with my boys and hubby. I enjoy long walks, just kidding…I live in Mississippi.  If I took a long walk, I would be nothing but a puddle before I made it even a 1/4 mile.  I love eating as healthy as I can. I love Jesus and doing the work of the ministry wherever & whenever I can.

Did I mention I love coffee?

I own Raziela Designs. I love jewelry design. I mainly design jewelry that falls into the Bohemian/Gypsy style.  I really enjoy what I do.  For years, I hated my job as a graphic designer at a major newspaper here in Mississippi.  Then the day came they let me go!  YAY!   I jumped into my jewelry making hobby…er…obsession full throttle.  I have worked with Cousin Corporation of America as one of their Creative Circle Ambassadors from 2011 until 2017 when they dissolved the program.  As part of the Creative Circle, I created jewelry making and craft projects for A.C. Moore, Michaels Craft Stores, Walmart, Walmart Canada, Mejier’s, and Jo-Ann Fabric as well as for Prima Bead and the Cousin DIY site.  My designs have also been seen on two episodes of CW’s hit show “Hart of Dixie” as well as at red carpet premiers.  Did I mention I love coffee?
