How I got started?
At the beginning of 2011, I decided to really get serious about building a business. A name became a problem. That is when I decided to use the names of my deceased daughters. I played with combinations until I found one that was unique & not being used by anyone else. "MyCarolAnne" was born & is finding a place in the real world of Artisan Jewelry. Carol passed of cancer & Anne passed in an accident. I still have one daughter living with her husband, 5 grand-children, & 9 great-grand-children. In 2019 I was forced into bankruptcy where I lost everything I had built with MyCarolAnne, so I changed my business name to Jewelry by Sande Gene, hosted it on Shopify & began all over. I still use vintage, re-purposed & recycled materials to save as much old, used jewelry from destruction as possible. This also guarantees each piece is unique as these materials are not replaceable. I am expanding my learning to seed beads and all of the wonderful exciting possibilities that they offer. And, using fishing line to create my seed bead items, which also makes them ‘water-proof’.
Jewelry by Sande Gene is a one family in home business. No smoking, one cat. Every piece is professional finished before shipping. We want every item to shine when it arrives. Thank you
