Pretty Baby Girl....

My Darling Chloe got her ears pierced last week
She's beautiful and I love her sooo much

I am so thrilled...

Jacqueline Gikow, an artist, jeweler and writer from New York has interviewed me and written a profile feature on her Blog about me and my Etsy shop, Beaded Embellishments. 
Jacqueline is a gifted person with many talents as you will see when you read her interesting and informative Blog entries and look around her Etsy shop (Jacqueline Jewelry), to view her creative jewelry and other items. She is actively pursuing her goals and assisting others to achieve theirs. She has been an encourager and a friend to me since I started my Etsy shop.
I encourage you to take a visit over to her Blog, Jacqueline Gikow, to read the profile she wrote about me and to see her other Blog posts here:
When you're finished reading her Blog you can check out her creative jewelry here:

I'd love to hear what you think about the profile she wrote about me by leaving me a message here on my Blog.
