Misty hails from Orange, Texas, and came of age in the 90’s, where...
I never outgrew my fascination with all things stylish. I may be a small town girl, but I am fortunate enough to have traveled the world, befriended fascinating people, and had unprecedented access to the jet set. These experiences inform my unique sense of style, which people copy relentlessly. Although I put my cowboy boots and Levi’s in storage (only temporarily), I never outgrew my fascination with all things stylish. "I was that little girl who took apart her dolls’ wardrobes. I ripped seams, replaced buttons, and added flourishes.” Misty’s pieces are traditional with unique detailing, all of which are instant hits.
2014 has been a year of transformation for Misty. In her darling Texas twang she explains, "I literally stumbled into this quite by accident. I had some free time, and decided to “rehab” (read: reinvent) a couple of necklaces which were way past their prime, and suddenly found my calling." This is not work. It truly is my calling! When I started beading, I actually meditated for the first time in my life. Girl, I know, it sounds cheesy, but it's true! The word “inspire" means 'in spirit' and guess what? I am truly in spirit on a daily basis. This is an outgrowth of who I am. I am a work in progress, and so is my 'work'. And, yes, as many people know, I can be a bit over-the-top, and so I am working on my Fall 2015 Private Label for the uber-wealthy. Think diamonds, skulls, and longhorns in unexpected materials.
Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life!
