Our Story

The inspiration for our name, Paradise Rose Designs, came from my two grandmas. My grandmother, Ginny, was a beautiful, creative soul. She created many things in her lifetime and found a real passion in making glass beads and crafting them into beautiful pieces of jewelry. I have many fond memories of spending summer days with her making beads and jewelry.

My grandma, Maryfrances, spent the early part of her life raising and caring for her family. She later followed her passion for helping others and started her own business as a massage therapist. She truly has a beautiful passion for helping others. Watching her follow her dreams has been a true inspiration to me. 

Early in 2023, I started making a few jewelry pieces for myself and quickly found my passion for making jewelry again. I decided it was time for me to follow my dream of owning my own business and building something that I’m truly proud of. When it came time to figure out a name for my business, I turned to my grandmas. Ginny’s favorite flower was the bird of paradise and Maryfrances’ favorite flower is the yellow rose. 

My goal is to take what I have learned from both of my grandmas and expand my knowledge as business woman and jewelry maker. Learning how to make beautiful glass pieces and forging my own jewelry through metal smithing are two things I am very excited to learn and share with you. Thank you for being on this journey with me and supporting my dreams as I pursue my passion to bring you beautiful and unique jewelry pieces!
