I am a retired registered nurse. I served in the United States Army as a Drill Sgt and Tank Commander. I have had jobs as a truck driver, commercial fisherman, a restaurant mgr.; I owned and operated an oilfield service company. I owned and operated a Family Practice clinic. I was a contract Registered Nurse for 18 years.
I have been making rosaries and jewelry for 9 years. I started out in Metairie, LA making high end rosaries and jewelry during a healthy economy. I was very successful until the onset of Katrina. Sales plummeted of course; I decided that I would have to make some changes. I began copying my own high end designs with less expensive findings. The untrained eye could not tell the difference. A $200 rosary redesigned became $60 in a mid level price and $35 in an affordable tier. From Swarovski leaded crystals from Austria, glass pearls from Japan, Celestial crystals from China, and glass beads from the Czech Republicmy designs became reborn. I have also refitted all of my jewelry designs in a similar fashion. I must be honest; I don't consider myself an artist.
That being said, women love my jewelry and Catholics always send me emails and letters of appreciation for my rosary designs. All of my designs are 100% original and made by my hands.
