Hi! I am Cyndie M. Styles. Here is something about myself. I have many activities and interests.
Besides posting, general merriment, and designing thread games for TBO eBay, I design and make polymer clay beads, jewelry, beaded pens, ceiling fan/lamp pulls, and much more. My user ID on eBay and on Etsy is BreathtakingBeadzz.
I have written 2 novels: Crossing Burning Bridges and Snakes in Paha Sapa. Both have been depicted on my website. Currently, I’m writing a 400 page novel, a 300 page novel, yet another novel, and am in the beginning stages of publishing and marketing the 400 page novel. I’m designing book covers for 2 novels and re-designing book covers for the 2 published novels paperback versions. I’m writing a mini-series and have completed a screenplay. I am also involved in booksignings and radio interviews.
I’m a daytrader 2 to 3 days a week, with many hours are spent researching stocks.
I have 3 pets who have been written into each of my stories.
And if that’s not enough, I also have a full-time job as a Flight Attendant that takes me to fun and exciting destinations domestically and abroad. This also allows me to sell my creations in the world market! ;)
My bead design includes many flowers and nearly all include butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, dragonflies, or ladybugs. Occasionally, I get a request to see some with just flowers. I'm continually listing new beads.
Each bead is hand-crafted, sanded and glazed for a nice glossy shine. As you can see from viewing my beads, there are no excess translucent outlines on my beads, which makes the pattern impeccably vivid.
I have been on eBay since 1998 and have been selling jewelry creations in my store (BreathtakingBeadzz) since April, 2006. In addition, I was a moderator of the beading group "Tranquil Beading Oasis" (TBO) before their closing, and am a proud member of Self-Representing Artist Jewelry Designer #2435 (SRAJD).
I accept custom bead orders! There is an outline at the bottom of the page here for details.
