I am what most people would call a Southern Belle, complete with a Southern accent as perfect as sweet tea!
I was born and raised in the Western part of North Carolina and have been designing and creating things with my hands since I was a little girl. Like most little girls, I have a love for jewelry, shoes, purses, as well as other accessories. I began creating and selling my very unique handmade PolyClay beads and earrings around the age of 10 for $5 per set at local craft shows with my mom (who is also very crafty as well).
As my love for jewelry and the need for uniqueness grew, I began to create my own jewelry to accent my wardrobe. As the numbers of compliments grew, I felt it was time to branch out and thus, Allura Marie Couture was born! I currently resides in Statesville, NC with her wonderful supportive husband, Steve; daughter, Oliviana Faith; and their two Yorkies, Maci Lei and Bella Marie.
