Hi, My name is Carla Bryant, owner, designer and maker at CJ’s Jewelry Creations.  I am new to the world of blogging so be patient and just laugh with me as I attempt to make sense of it!  Though still learning about Social Media, blogging and the like, I do have valuable experience in the designing and fabrication of jewelry.  I am a Graduate Gemologist from GIA, and have 15 years experience making and selling handmade, one of a kind art/jewelry.  I started my journey in New Mexico when a student asked to make a beaded ring in one of my classes.  Wow! The colors I found when I went into a small bead store in Alamogordo, NM!  I was hooked! Seed beads, glass beads, semi-precious beads, silver beads, I love them all.  Soon I discovered Indian Jeweler’s Supply ( if you don’t live in Albuquerque or Gallup) in Albuquerque and I started to explore silver smithing.  To introduce color, I  added semi-precious and precious stones, both faceted and cabochons.  The journey went on from there! We moved to Colorado and finally ended up here, in Corpus Christi, Texas.  My handmade jewelry is eclectic in style, being inspired by the many cultures and styles encountered in our wanderings.  So check out our website,  Browse. Shop. Buy. Learn.
