About us...

Where to begin? I'll begin by saying "thank you" for visiting my site and being curious. I've been making and designing jewelry since 2000. It's actually a great story that I love to share! Very serendipitous and wonderful!

I had just had my second son and sold a business. I didn't have a clue what the next chapter of my life would be. I went to the Oregon Coast with my family for a few weeks to decompress and try to figure out what was next! Well as the Oregon coast would have it.....it rained almost everyday. During the afternoons, I would put my two boys down for a nap, my parents would hold the fort down so I could have a couple hours to myself. I spent every day walking to the historic town of Nye Beach. Great little shops, galleries and restaurants! I found a wonderful gallery with fabulous art. I loved the atmosphere, but I really loved the back room, it was wall to wall beads, with a giant bin full of beads in the middle. I could spend hours scouring through it to find it's hidden treasures! And I did! By the end of the first week, I had become a regular! I had shared my story with the owner, Nancy. We became fast friends. I bought beads like I knew what I would do with them! Nancy showed me a few techniques and let me borrow her tools for the night. I went back to the house we had rented and after I had put the boys to bed I began creating! At first I was just copying many of the pieces Nancy had in her gallery. But after a while the creative juices started flowing......

The next day I went back to the gallery, excitedly, to show Nancy what I had made. I continued to buy more beads. I'm sure Nancy loved me at this point! And she continued to let me borrow her tools! Every night I would put the boys to bed and begin to play and create! By the end of my time on the Oregon Coast, I was hooked and Nancy knew it. As I was saying my goodbyes she kindly said to me..."Angie, this is what you need to do!" She ended up giving me the names of her suppliers and a set of tools. Driving home I came across the name "La De Da". I thought it fit me perfectly- it was everything I wanted life to be and how I wanted to live it! And over 16 years later it's been everything I've ever dreamed of....Serendipitous indeed!



And of course life has been a wild ride over those years for sure.... I am now the proud mother of 3 teenage boys!
