Professional experience includes 15 year career in the Fragrance Industry with positions in sales and executive management levels. Followed by a growing family and a shift in priorities, I found what I loved to do. After training in metalsmithing at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, I launched my own small business, Deda Jewelry, now known as Deda Designs LLC. This is where I can indulge in creative bench work with hands on jewelry fabrication using upscale materials. I draw upon my sales and business experience and truly enjoy presenting my work to clients.
