I Became a Collector Of Reborn Dolls A While Back and After having A Lot Of Trouble Finding Jewelry That Complimented The Reborn Artist Work I Decided To Do A Lot Of Research On What Materials Were Safe On The Vinyl/Silicone Of The Baby And Make My Own. After getting A Lot Of Request for The Ones I Was Creating I Decided To Make And Sell Them.
So I opened a little shop and called it Southern Simplicities. I use 4mm and 6mm Swarovski Faux Glass Pearls, Other Assorted Fire Polished Beads, 4mm and 6mm Swarovski Crystals, Assorted Silver Plated Findings ,Spacers and Bead Caps. 11/0 And 8/0 Assorted Glass Seed Beads. I Use Polymer Clay Charms handmade as Well As Silver Plated Tibetan Charms. I use Beading Wire and Beading String. NOTE-The Reason I No Longer use the Stretch Cord Because I have had to many Instances Where The Sharp Edges To The Swarovski Crystal In Time Have Caused Bracelets To Break. So I Now Make Bracelets To Size With Lobster Claw Clasps. But If Client Insists I Can Use Elastic Bead Cord. I also do a lot of scrap for hire and graphics for hire those are my main two love Jewelry and Graphics. I am self taught in both.
