About the Crowlady

My real name is Joan Church. My husband nicknamed me "Crow" over 30 years ago. The reason for the nickname refers to the crows' affinity for shiny objects. (I also like to believe it has something to do with the crows' incredible intelligence.)

I grew up in a very crafty and artistic family. I remember as a small child making Christmas presents with my mother at the dining room table. My mother and grandmother started teaching me to sew before I even started elementary school. I majored in Art & English all through school, even taking classes in metal design and weaving. I have been making bead jewelry for as long as I can remember. My family and friends have been wearing my creations since the 1960's. Now I am ready to expand my hobby to a small business and share with others. I hope you like my designs and enjoy browsing my site. If you have any questions or comments, please email me at joan@crowladyjewels.com. I would love to hear from you and will answer all emails.

Thanks again!

The critters: Marco, Oxy, & Sister

Update: Sister was stolen from my yard. After searching for 2 months, we adopted another dashund from the pound. Oxy now has a little brother. He has long hair and since he wouldn't answer to his name "Luca", we call him Fuzz. He likes his new nickname and even comes when I call.
