About me

Location Syracuse, NY, United States
Introduction I am wife to my high school sweetheart, mama to the sweetest boy ever born, and I have a little addiction called "jewelry design". I specialize in custom wedding design and titanium and niobium earrings for people with metal allergies and extra sensitive ears (of which I am one). I started making jewelry for myself when I developed a metal allergy and couldn't find cool stuff that I could wear. Then I began creating jewelry as gifts for family and friends. My sister-in-law insisted for a couple years that I try to sell my designs, which I was a little apprehensive about because I didn't know where to begin. Then I found Etsy and decided why not - they make it so easy! I decided that I wanted to create in a style that was hip, edgy and unique, and I used my middle name, Variya, because I thought it really embodied that - my Dad created that for me. The majority of my work is one of a kind, because I love to create new designs. I describe my style as vintage-mod. My motto is "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" and I think that keeps a continuity to my designs.
Interests jewelry - obviously, music, art, vacations! and traveling, charity & volunteer work, mommy stuff, family time, coffee AND dessert with friends, conversation, organic gardening, spanish language, environmental conservation, truth, love, justice, community =)
Favorite Movies robin hood prince of thieves (old school with k. costner), that thing you do, the notebook - but i can never actually watch it again

Favorite Books Anything by Francine Rivers, The Secret Life of Bees - which I was delighted to read by accident, Till We Have Faces, and many more which I don't have the patience to remember right now.. this is taking too long.

All of the phone numbers have fallen out of your address book. Whose number do you look for first and why?

my husband's cell phone because it's probably the one i call and give out the most but i don't think have ever actually dialed, and he would have most of the other numbers saved in his!
