Hello, my name is Lenni. I am a retired skydiver with over 1400 skydives. I live in Montana with my husband Fred,
who also is my best friend. We over look a beautiful valley called 'Lost Prairie', where we teach skydiving. I am a native born and raised in Great Falls.
I was diagnosed in 2001 with Parkinson's Disease. If you do not know about Parkinson's Disease it is a debilitating disease. It affects the nervous system and muscles. Your muscles become rigid, tremors happen and your movement slows. This is due to the loss of dopamine in the brain.
There is not a cure for this disease at this time. So I now spend time helping to raise money for this cause.
As the story goes, my sister Linda came to visit me from Missouri, you know 'the show me state'. She wanted to make a bracelet that said 'Cure Parkinson's'. Well that was the beginning. We were hooked. Then my girlfrIends got in on it and it grew into making jewelry for a cause,
research to find a cure for Parkinson's Disease.
My jewelry is hand crafted and affordable. It is created by myself and inspired by my sister and my girlfriends.. I use stone, glass, turquoise, swarovski crystals, and more. I use quality beads in which some are glass beads designed and handmade by my sister. I use sterling silver, some silver plated, copper and vermeil, and much more. All of the 'Suitcase' beads are lead free and full of fun,
artsie-funky and totally creative and unusual wear.
So right now you can email me and
I will send you photos of my work.
