Welcome to XiaoLinaJewelry
For a major part of my adult life, I had been a teacher. Then my family and I migrated to the States. I discovered that my teaching credentials were not recognized here in the States. Thus I went job-hunting.
My first job was as an expediter for a small costume - jewelry manufacturing company. There I learned the ins and outs of manufacturing costume jewelry. I was also given the chance to do some jewelry designing.
After a few years there, I went to work for a fine jewelry manufacturer. There I learned about gemstones such as diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires etc. As an expediter, I had to be familiar with the many varied stages of producing pieces of fine jewelry. I was not required to actually work in the factory, just know the steps and which employee handled what.
It was a very good job but unfortunately the owner got into financial difficulties and had to declare Chapter 11.
I went for a floral designing course and obtained a job as a floral designer and customer service rep. in a hospital flower shop.
For relaxation, I designed beaded jewelry. My colleagues suggested that I market my designs and so my on-line business was born.
All my designs are one-of-a-kind and you will not see an identical piece on another person.
I thoroughly enjoyed designing these pieces for you and I sincerely hope you will enjoy wearing them too.
All sold items will be carefully packed in a standard cotton-filled jewelry box, tied with ribbons.........ready for gifting or as a treat for yourself.
