|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.|

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!
