Colleen's Collection Hi There! My passion for art and creation is put into every piece I make! I value my customers and every purchase is a compliment. I stand by my pieces!

Hi there! My passion for art and creativity has been throughout my life. From performing arts in high school and college to my wonderful painting boxes for gifts. However, the bead one has been there throughout it all. My parents always nagged me after seeing 100 necklaces made and me never wearing them. "What are you gonna do with this - are you gonna make some money or did you waste it all?!" w

Me wearing mine- a female neighbor passed by at a theater event 2 weeks ago, with (I swear!) this same necklace! Shows I make stuff that’s sold on the market- I almost went up and asked if she bought from me! (I was sure she didn’t - wish I gave my card, for more!)

A friend I grew up with has a page now selling stuff (but it’s all Gucci, Chanel, etc!) I never felt I had a chance- but I showed her some stuff- and she loved (and bought!) this Mother of Pearl! So it will be sold (with the Gucci, etc) can’t wait! I got $40 and felt was decent (has been with me for a long time, but many enjoyed it!)

Wanted to share cool creative thing I did besides beading! I painted this for my RX cuz they do so much for me. The main guys loved it- but their General Manager boss said no to hanging up☹️ - apparently an old RX did too much goofy painting and got him to dislike all! Amazing thing now- both RX want to take it home! (Fighting over who gets too! 😱) awww! Wow! I am speechless! What a compliment! But easy to fix- told I will make a second painting (and I have pic to make sure it’s just as good! )

Happy Turkey Day!!! Hope a smile and laugh come with your Thanksgiving Holiday!

Did yearly bead sale yesterday here in The Villages. Not a huge crowd of customers sadly- but a gal came at the end and bought around 10 pieces! Omg! My new BFF forever!!
Talked to her about teaching how to make things! She is very interested!

Ever wanted something made "just for you!" - colors in mind, ideas, ...I am all yours! ❤️👍👍

A friend had an awesome idea and I just finished it! Matching Mother of pearl disc necklaces- one for her and a second for her Mother in Law! She wanted one in each metal to tell them apart! I added a nice extension to each so they could pick the length with the outfit!😍👍👍

Hey guys, look like store bought necklaces...right???!! Nope! I made them!! I learned how to do modern day style and am gonna try and make more! Might even start a second bead club in the Villages to show others how! Not hard- need good tools and supplies!

I heard a neighborhood friend was having a party and her fav color was green. I picked the middle one with the gold accents - she loved it and put it on! Tell me your color and I bet I have 6 necklaces of it too!!

05/28/2016

Hey guys - if you are here in Florida and like stuff enough to want me to start a club - push like!! I think it would be neat to have a second bead club thats a bit more modern! Won't need to buy at the store - you will know how to make the necklace/earrings!

Well, guess I am jinxed!
Told you guys about a month ago that I got Brain surgery finally and felt good...but stomach seizures were still around - still taking meds. Went to follow up with doc yesterday and found out they did not get everything of what they needed to. My brain is "hotter than the average bear" to quote doc. Hot brain? = Stress!! Figures!! So, get ready for second surgery - 3 weeks from now! Around 3/14! Ugh!!

11/22/2015

Must admit - need a favor...I am trying to raise money for brain surgery I am having next year - so buying something this season would mean a lot - I already owe 3 grand (in copays - on Medicare)! I am gonna have a Yard sale Dec 5 and 6th with the Jewelry - don't miss out if you are not local here in Florida! And if you want something special - like a real pearl necklace - I can customize - I have every color - and if I don't have it - I have a great supplier!! Just describe - maybe show what you want to match - I can make 3 or 4 for you to choose from!

wow! just a quick update on stats guys...we will overcome!! I promise!! won't tell whole story - too scary - read the book when I do it. cliff notes - suicidal twice, raging ____ to the staff second day when they did not give me my meds and I had 5 stomach seizures...why all this happened - I was detoxing!! OMG!! never drank, smoke, even done pot in my life - and I was relating to a he**in addict who talked about detox! now stupid doc takes me off one med I was taking for years cold turkey - bad idea - from 600 mg to 0!! and I realized yesterday I had been taking too much of one drug - The bottle was old and said 2 per day - crossed that off quick - so 750 at night becomes 150 - more detox!! wow! Back at home now, yesterday came home, still a bit off and depressed, but getting there - one day at a time!!
