inspiration & story

"I get my love of jewelry from my mother who never left home without wearing earrings, a necklace, several bracelets, and rings on most every finger. I pay homage to her and my grandfather (after whom my mother is named) and grandmother by naming my business after them, addie & clyde.

I have always had a passion for wearing jewelry and began my jewelry making journey twenty years ago when I lived on Kauai and sold to Sand People stores throughout the Hawaiian Islands. After living there for ten years, I decided to return to the beautiful Piney Woods of Northeast Texas where I was born and am deeply rooted. Since moving back I have sold jewelry in shops in Dallas, Hughes Springs, and Marshall and my own shop when I lived in Mount Pleasant. Now I live on a farm in Omaha with three dogs. My days are filled with jewelry making in a variety of metals and colorful beads and components that I make or buy from wonderfully creative artisans.

Thank you so much for your time - I hope you enjoy what I make as much as I enjoy making it."
