How did you get started in this field? I was always interested in art while in high school.  I was able to draw abstract objects that turned out extremely well.  It was this beginning that inspired me to  become more focused on designing. In 2008, I enrolled in a straw craft class at BTVI and there began my journey towards handbag designing.  After graduating from BTVI, I decided to become an entrepreneur whose main focus was manufacturing straw products.  It wasn’t until this year that I saw Teri Bethel’s advertisement in Chevy’s Accessories and was fascinated by what I saw.  I knew from that moment that I had to meet Mrs. Bethel.  And I did just that.  I tracked her down, enrolled immediately in her on-line classes at the beginning of November 2013 and started designing bags with a different perspective. These new skills learnt from Teri has allowed me to take my products to another level.  Now I am more enthusiastic about creating and designing handbags.
Our visitors would love to hear more about your experiences. While still enrolled at BTVI, I was introduced to a lady who worked at Government House.  She was interested in purchasing straw products to present to consulate wives as gifts.  At the end of our meeting she placed an order of clutches, handbags and portfolios. For me this opportunity would forever be one of my most memorable stories. Just the fact of knowing that my products would be all over the world was incredible.
