Who Am I?

 

**Updated 11/10/2017**

My name is Deirdre O’Callaghan.  I have always been known by my nickname, DeeDee.  

I have two awesome sons, 24 and 28 years old.  My primary interests, aside from making jewelry, are music, football, the outdoors, fairies and motorcycles.  These are all of the things that inspire my jewelry creations.

I am the daughter of an art historian and geologist which may explain my fascination with color and beads.  In addition, both of my parents painted.  Somehow I found my artistic outlet in making jewelry.

It all started with me envisioning a piece of jewelry for an outfit and ended with my frustration at not finding exactly what I envisioned.  After a few failed attempts at finding what I wanted, I decided I was not going to settle for anything else so I took matters into my own hands!

I have slowly but surely increased my knowledge and my inventory in the course of about 20 years.  It started with the simplest of supplies and making little projects with my boys, occasionally making a quick pair of earrings for a night out, making gifts for friends and family and now, having time on my hands, doing as much as I feel like and staying busy!  

There’s no reason to not make this a full time endeavor!

After a divorce and with my children grown, I have moved to the mountains where the inspiration is endless.  I am in a good place with friends and family that are a source of motivation and support.  There can’t possibly be any better time to do this!

I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy creating them.
