My Home Based Business has been a Blessing to me Since I was forced to “Retire” due to my Metz Breast Cancer.
I love making things with my hands and this was how Custom Paracord & Jewelry by Carolyn was born.
Making jewelry & Scorpions all day helps to take my mind off all my medical issues and is a blessing to have my mind set on something else. I put everything I have into each and every  item I make.  
It may sound weird, maybe a little stupid.. But, If you have not been thru the hell that I have lived since being diagnosed with cancer and then told I have Metz cancer, you may not get this.
I see beauty in the most Ugliest of things and I try to bring out their beauty for all to see.  Don’t get me wrong I love to make beautiful jewelry. But I love and I mean love to go shopping just to look to see if I can find that one special piece of “Coal” to turn into a “Diamond”.

 

This is how my Brand came to life: The Scorpion!
The Scorpion is my Coal that I turned into a Diamond!  

 

I just love that deep absorption and consideration of the object to be made and how the raw materials together to make the unique item. 
While working on the jewelry the hours pass like minutes, especially when I’m deep in the process of thinking, sketching, cutting, and creating the item.
The Best Part of creating the Jewelry or Item(s) is: 
  • the Gratification of creating something unique that hasn’t existed before.
  • You make someone happy 
  • It’s fashionable
  • It can be an heirloom to start a family tradition
  • It’s a social signifier.  It shows wealth and status to others around.
  • It is a form of art that interacts well with one’s style.
  • Has the power that can make you feel completely unique.
I just want everyone to know that just because you have a medical condition (Cancer, Diabetic, Heart Disease, etc) you don’t have to just sit around the house and do nothing. You can always do things to keep yourself busy. Weather it be crafts, helping others, blogging, watching kids, starting your own business, etc.  
I just want to say: Don’t Give Up! Don’t Stop!
Losing Is Not An Option!

 

I didn’t Give Up and Look where I am now! I have my own business.

Scorpions

The Oklahoma Scorpion 

Scorpions are not classified as insects but as arachnids. There are approximately 50 species of scorpions that occur in the continental United States, but most of these are found in the Southwest. The exact number of species in Oklahoma has been estimated at between three and five, but only one species is common to the entire state, the Bark Scorpion.
Bark scorpions are smaller than most scorpions (1-2 inches long). The pincers are long and thin, and its abdominal segments are longer and more slender than other scorpions. The color may vary from light tan to a darker golden brown. It is also the only scorpion that curls its tail to the side while at rest.
They often ambush their prey, lying in wait as they sense its approach. They consume all types of insects, spiders, centipedes, and other scorpions. 
The venom of the bark scorpion may produce severe pain (but rarely swelling) at the site of the sting, numbness, frothing at the mouth, difficulties in breathing (including respiratory paralysis), muscle twitching, and convulsions. Death is rare, especially in more recent times. Antivenin is available for severe cases. Certain people, however, may be allergic to the venom and can experience life-threatening side effects when stung (as occurs with bee stings).
