Jim & Cathy Sue stay active playing pickel ball, biking, hiking, traveling, and visiting their kids and grandchildren in Colorado, Arizona and California. Jim and Cathy Sue retired from American Airlines. 



As a counselor and life coach in the early 90’s, CatSue found designing inspirational jewelry was the perfect medium for helping her friends and clients work through their personal challenges and issues. She would create specific “story jewelry” that was handcrafted and meaningful to remind others to think positive, uplifting thoughts. Depending on the situation, she would select specific beads, stones, and charms to convey a theme to address a particular challenge such as healingfaith, or comfort. As more of these inspirational story bracelets were designed and worn, their friends and family would ask if she would make them an inspirational story bracelet too. As the demand grew, so did the many designs. Today, we have over 30 styles of bracelets.

Jim’s 83-year-old mom, Lucille Sagerser, was inspirational in assembling two-thirds of the bracelets for the QVC show. Because of this positive experience, we decided to continue employing the elderly to assemble our story bracelets while we completed the process by sizing and installing the clasps. This wonderful practice has continued for 25 years.


Since then, our jewelry has sold in a few high fashion places like Nordstrom, a national magazine chain, and many gift shops across the country. Today, however, we concentrate our sales of story jewelry to selling on the internet and by distributors of Bead Beautiful.  If you have an interest in becoming a member of our distributor family, please contact us.
