I am Detrina Kofroth, a jewelry designer, teacher and small business owner.
I live in the beautiful Foothills of North Carolina and I come from a long line of craftsmen on both sides of my family. I have been professionally making crafts, for most of my life.
I have three wonderful children and three precious grandchildren.
As my three children began to fly from the nest, I began to think about turning my part time craft experience into a full time career. I realized after a lot of soul searching, that Jewelry design is my one true passion.
The Alluring Bead Boutique is a Non-Traditional Jewelry Store, specializing in artistic jewelry techniques and designs. Not only do I sell beautiful handmade OOAK Jewelry, I also sell my own Patterns and Technique Guides.
As the owner of The Alluring Bead Boutique, I strongly believe in sharing and giving back to my customers and my community.
I have incorporated this value into my business by creating my own virtual classrooms on a variety of platforms.
My Blog, A Jeweler’s Life, is dedicated not only to teaching jewelry techniques and design, but also to helping other craftsmen build their own business and brand.
My business has grown and evolved over the last few years, but my Core Value remains the same.
I strive to be a positive influence for my students, my customers and my communities.
My business philosophy is simple, People First!
I believe that everyone should be treated with respect and honesty in all my personal and professional relationships.
I strive to provide the best quality possible and to always do the right thing for my customers, students and followers.
I will always be personally responsible for my actions and impact on my communities.
