Let's here some more about MagyarBeader:

1. First things first, tell us a little more about yourself...

My name is Valerie and I am a single lady with a very significant other who has brought the magic back into my life. His name is Buddy! He is that, and so much more.I am also a mom to four lovely adult daughters and have one grandchild.We live in the Detroit area of Michigan but plan to retire in the Mid South as soon as we can. We have two spoiled kitties who allow us to share their home as long we agree to live by their rules!

2. What is your regular job?

From March through September we travel around the USA doing trade shows for a large manufactoring company nearly every week. Lots of flying, fast food and dreary hotels. I would much rather be beading, painting or playing with my camera!

3. Do you Haiku?

Here is my very first attempt at Haiku:

I am a blank slate

the colors call to me

I see a pink rose

4. Picture of your workspace (as is, no cheating!)

Our home is for sale so my work area (the guest room) is much neater than normal. I like it much better when everything is spread out all over the room.


5. What inspires you?

The inspiration for my crafts and my love for color is a gift from my very talentd family, past and present.

6. What item in your shop is your favorite and why?

My favorite creation is Royal Purple Necklace. I love beadworking the best and the rich colors in this piece. The photos don't really do it justice.


Thank you Valerie so much for you wonderful giveaway! I love your jewelry!

Hi there! I really enjoyed reading your interview with Valerie. It is always fun to learn a little bit about the artist behind the creations they make. Besides my absolutely loving the necklace in this giveaway I also was very drawn to the PURPLE DAZE NECKLACE from Valerie's Etsy shop - MagyarBeader. Valerie really has an eye for style and attention to detail and knowing what colors work well together to create beautiful jewelry treasures! I love the vintage flair to them all! Thank you so much for offering this great giveaway!
