Joy opened CatinaLife on ArtFire.com 10-11-08, and she's filled her shop with some incredibly stunning jewelry. Her studio announcement reads: "Welcome to my shoppe. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Take a peek at my Purple category 50% of sales this month in my entire shop will be donated to Domestic Violene Intervention Woman's Shelter in Iowa City, Iowa.......a great cause, a great organization................ Don't rush off...take a minute to browse through my store, you might find something you fancy. Custom fit available. If you are interested in a particular stone please feel free to contact me, I may just have it.
Take a moment and review my shop policies and Thanks for shopping. I will refund overage on postage if I can ship it Priority Mail. Postage is FREE for orders over US $100.00, refunded through PayPal.
Every item in my shoppe is my own design and assembled by me. I pledge to provide my customers with the highest quality product I'm capable of producing; to provide them with excellent service; and to conduct my business in an honest, ethical and socially responsible manner.

And you really have to be sure to check out her Meet the Maker section in her studio. There's more info about her and her interests, and some really cool pics (love the cat in her life- lol!). Some of her customers have said "All pieces are lovely, they all met my expectations on stone selection and craftsmanship!", "Catinalife is not only a great seller she is also a great customer! Always pays fast and very easy to deal with! If you buy or sell to her you will not be sorry!!

OK, I'm just browsing through her studio going "Ooh, wow! That is SO pretty!", and she's got 16 pages of gorgeous handcrafted jewelry! Talk about a talented artitist!
