About

My Business Card Designed by my friend, Christine Scott, artist extraordinaire

I began making jewelry in 2003 during a winter storm in Virginia.  As a high school earth science teacher, I was always fascinated by geology, especially gems, rocks and minerals.  I have since left high school teaching behind.  Here in Florida I teach part-time at the college level, work at a few retail stores, and of course, design, create and sell my  jewelry.

Colors and patterns are my specialty.  Before I sell the jewelry, I test it to ensure its strength and durability.

The name Heaven Lane Creations was coined by my husband, Mark ,because we live on Heaven Lane in Fort Myers, Florida. I am the only girl in the house.  I have three sons and a male dog.

In addition to the styles of necklaces, bracelets, anklets and earrings featured on the website hosted by my good friend and artist, Christine Scott, www.christinescottartfuliving.com ,  I work directly with customers in designing one-of-a-kind pieces for weddings or any other special occasion.

I use traditional beading techniques. But I have developed a love of  bead weaving, bead embroidery, bead crochet and Kumihimo, a Japanese braiding technique. I  use beads and findings that I collect from bead stores around the country and world.  My three favorite stores are Bab’s Bead Warehouse in Fort Myers, Florida and Studio Baboo  in Charlottesville, Virginia and the Bead Cellar in Pennsauken, NJ.

My pieces have been sold at Traders on Sanibel, the Art Alliance of Lee County, Fussy Female, Eva Essentials as well as art shows and private parties.
