In 2013 I decided to start my own Etsy shop because of my love for craft and DIY projects. This love is deep embedded in me as my mother was a seamstress and was always busy working on something and I loved to watch and help when I could. Since her sewing abilities did not pass on to me I have found my love for the handmade jewelry business. In the spring of 2015 I found my niche with hand painted wood bead charm and tassel bracelets. TR's Tidbits + Treasures is a one woman shop. I paint every wood bead by hand with no tape or guide (in 2017 I painted over 12,000 beads), each tassel is made by me, and I also make the clay charms used on the bracelets. I am so very happy you are here and that you love the bracelets as much as I do!
