Tell us about yourself.
My name is Delia Benn. I am married and have three grown up children and four precious grand children. I was born and raised in South Africa and emigrated to the USA 22 years ago. After 18 years in sunny Southern California, we moved here to Pikesville.
I have always loved doing craftsy things and, as I love jewelry, I was drawn to experimenting with beads. Once I started, it became an obsession and I just love learning new techniques.
What made me decide to sell my creations? It's an expensive hobby and I got such good feedback from family and friends that I decided to set up shop on Etsy.
How did you come up with your business name?
I call my shop DeeDeeDzyn because, as a child, I was sometimes called DeeDee and it sounded more catchy than my name.
What creation are you most proud of making and why?
I like to make crochet lariats and chokers and, my latest thing is spiral beading. I would so love to learn to work with metals, but that will, hopefully, come later.
What's the ugliest thing you've ever made?
When I look at some of my earliest pieces that never sold, I realize how far I've come and how ugly they really are. I'm now pulling them apart and using the materials for other pieces.
What do you do when you're not creating?
When I'm not creating, I'm either babysitting, reading or blogging. You can see my blog at http://www.deedeedzyn.blogspot.com/
What do you love about Baltimore?
After the beautiful weather in California which didn't vary that much during the year, I love the four seasons and the unique beauty each one brings. I also love all the culture that is available, but most of all, I love it that my four grandchildren are here and live a block from me.
