SIRIUS XM STARS host DR. LAURA SCHLESSINGER has launched "DR. LAURA DESIGNS" to sell her personally designed and handcrafted jewelry, glass and polymer clay art online. The boutique site, DrLauraDesigns.com, offers both ready-made and custom items; DR. LAURA designs and handcrafts all of the work seen on the site.
DR. LAURA has been designing jewelry since, during a family crisis, her then-little son suggested she take up a new hobby, although, she said, "I never thought I had one ounce of artistic ability, and couldn't think of what I could do"; prompted by a listener to visit a local bead fest, she said, "I walked by a table filled with Tibetan ornaments and my brain just exploded with creative images. I bought books on jewelry-making and purchased tools, wire, beads and stones and got started."
Her designs raised over $1.5 million for OPERATION FAMILY FUND, a non-profit aiding families of those injured or killed while fighting the war on terrorism.
