My name is Lisa Mitchell and I am a mother, wife, business owner and (perhaps most importantly) secret punk renegade. I first fell in love with piercings when I was a teenager, and it is no exaggeration that I craved metal against my skin because it just looked cool! I wanted something edgy, but unfortunately my parents did not see eye to eye with me at the time. My father in particular was not too keen on the idea of me putting holes into my body and so we came up with the compromise of cuffs! No piercings required, but the look I wanted! Unfortunately way back when there weren’t too many designs available, and I personally have a nickel allergy so unless those cuffs were gold I was out of luck. While I grew up, I never grew out of that enchantment with metal and I am proud to share that my business DazzlingAdornments represents my personality through and through. I am your expert for cuffs and piercing free jewelry! When I am not busy supplying the worlds teenagers (and adults who don’t want to let go of their personal style just because they have a day job) with safe and interchangeable faux piercings, I am running around like crazy taking care of my two young children. You might be surprised to find that I have gone to college for an eclectic selection of subjects ranging from CADD Engineering to Elementary School Education, but nothing really fit like the magic of jewelry design and execution. I love what I do, and I love the flexibility that being a small business owner offers my family and me. I have the opportunity to spend time with my mother who lives only down the street; I can play with my children, or laugh with friends and my husband. When I really want to relax you’ll find me curled up on my deck, good book cracked, and an even better bottle of wine uncorked.
