Get to know: Cyndi of Cyndi David Jewelry

Mt. Kisco resident Cyndi David is one of our original jewelry designers at Beehive.  If you've been in the shop, you've probably seen Cyndi's smiling face, or you may have (or have gifted) one of her trademark initial necklaces.  Here's a bit about Cyndi, her work and what inspires her craft.

 What do you design/make, & what materials do you use?  When did you start designing? 
Leather bracelets adorned with Swarovski crystals
I make jewelry, and I've made jewelry as long as I can remember.  Right now my style is boho chic.  I work primarily in sterling silver, fine silver, bronze, and leather.  I incorporate semi precious stones and crystals into my pieces.  My newest passion is bronze cuff bracelets.  I make them with bronze precious metal clay which I fire and polish at my in home studio.

Is this your full-time gig? If not, how do you make time to  create in your hectic life? 
I  am an at home Mom right now, so I work between folding loads of laundry, making dinner, and picking kids up from after school activities. Sometimes I get up before dawn or work late into the night.  I find that my creative energy is at it's best when the rest of the world is quiet and peaceful.

What are you working on right now?
I am inspired by nature and the change of seasons.  You will often see transitions in my line when the weather changes.  I am looking forward to the soft colors and freshness of spring!
