About Sharon

Just a bit about me – freelance writer, published author, jewelry artisan and Grandma! I’m the managing partner and namesake of Rose of Sharon Jewelry.

I live in a golf resort community in Sparks, NV(3 blocks from my son’s family). Hubby Arden and I have been married almost 35-years! Nothing better than loving your best friend.


Hey! Watch out for that flash.

Life is centered around family and nurturing creativity. Most of my writing is business-based but I also enjoy writing lifestyle articles (check out my portfolio at Writes-a-Lot). About 5 years ago, I started designing and creating jewelry for family and friends. I quickly realized that jewelry-making taps into a different creative vein and provides me with new and exciting challenges.

Since I was always dreaming of beads and new necklace designs, it was obvious that handmade jewelry should become my primary career. Before I could say Rose of Sharon Jewelry, my extended family decided it would be great fun to join me. From my 30-year-old niece to my dear Granny who beaded until she passed away at 95 – talent is in abundance in my family. What a joy to be sharing the power of creation with the people I love – and you! Rose of Sharon Jewelry is now an active family business featuring over 375 years of combined artistic talent!



Grandma and Orion gardening

Orion loves to garden.

Grandma – hearing that name – is like being hugged. I have three great grandsons who are so much fun. Hunter is 15, athletic and popular with the girls. He loves computer/video games and is a championship Halo leader. The twins, Kael and Orion are 6-years-old and loving kindergarten! What a joy they are – our lives are filled with laughter and adventure. Watch for pictures!
