"A lucky charm"

You must visit My helping hands , a site for avitars, banners, ads and more. Anne, also of Made for me by Oaklie , is the creator of this entity. I was lucky enough to win a free ad layout and four ad listings. I have sold five pieces within just one day of the ads being listed, there are no guaranteed sales, but I have to say that "Anne is my lucky charm!"

I've been featured today on made it myself ning, what's my story? "here it is"

Hi, I'm Kandace Tisdale a.k.a. Kandio,
I live in "The Windy City", Chicago, Illinois. I have two wonderful children, Nathan 13, and Claudia 9. I am a Real Estate Developer, I have been building single family homes for the last ten years, designing timeless interiors and exteriors including my own.
I majored in fashion design at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. I managed a high end fashion design company called Su-zen for seventeen years.
Besides jewelry and being a web junkie in my spare time, I luv entertaining, pottery, drawing and playing classical music on the piano.
My luv for the creative arts started back as far as I can remember, my Mom was a concert pianist, painter and literary Artist, my Dad indulged in singing opera, my older brother was a lead guitarist, writer and all out rock star and my sister a dancer, MTRIP. I used to dig up clay in the back yard to make sculptures, designed paperdoll clothes and would draw till my crayons were nubs.
Many of you on MIM unknowingly have inspired and motivated me to develop further into creating and promoting my jewelry, thank you, Anne, Kerri, Lise and Nathalie.

scaling down

I'm adding to my jewelry line pieces that are smaller, more affordable and easy to wear for everyday.
This is a challenge for me because I stray toward the big, bold and colorful.
