I believe I was led by my ancestors to the location of my current workshop. While strolling with my mother down Main Street of historic Grapevine, TX – where my ancestors were among the first settlers – I felt “pulled” down one of the side roads to a little house that had been turned into a shop. Even my mother would later say it looked as if someone were pulling or pushing me along. We browsed inside the shop for a bit, then left without thinking about what might have drawn me down that street that day. A few months later, I found a place for sale that was just perfect to start my workshop – something I’ve dreamed about for years. I instantly recognized the street as the one I had been drawn to just months before.

My jewelry inspiration comes from an eclectic variety of inspirations, ranging from programming to organic materials, making each day in the studio an adventure.

The name of my company, Yellow Rose Designs, is a tribute to my Texas heritage and my ancestors. Wherever they lead, I will gladly follow.

The Studio

In addition to serving as my own workspace, the Yellow Rose studio will soon be set up as a working classroom. The studio also offers jewelry-making tools and supplies for retail sale, including hard-to-find natural stone and shell cabochons and natural stone and glass beads. PMC® and polymer clay artists — be sure to check out my custom designed patterns and molds, sold exclusively through Yellow Rose Studio!

In case you’re wondering, those blue chairs are hydraulic salon chairs! Possibly the most comfortable, ergonomic chairs around! The fridge was from a friend who was throwing it out and is usually stocked with soda (the full leaded kind) and ice and little else. The shelves lining the walls came from the original Elliott’s Hardware store in Grapevine when they closed their doors. Many of the tools, paints and hardware hanging around also came from Elliott’s. I’ve got all kinds of fun trinkets laying around, from Mardis Gras masks and beads to juggling sticks to my very own family “witch’s broom” (to sweep out evil spirits and give me inspiration). Oh, and of course tools, tools, and more tools!
