My mom and dad nicknamed me "Looly" when I was a little girl growing up in Idaho. I'm not sure where it came from, but it stuck! I am the wife to Jon Gelder and we've been married for 20 years. We have two kids together, both boys, but 11 years apart. They are the cutest boys you've ever seen! We also have 3 dogs and 2 cats and a hamster. It feels like a real farm around here.
I've been making jewelry for about 31 years now, but all different styles through the years. I'm obsessed with turquoise and I'm a bit of a gypsy lady. I love to wear jewelry, buy jewelry, and make jewelry. I was published in four different issues of Bead Trends Magazine. I just can't get enough!!!
