Did you ever make art projects with your mom as a kid? I bet those art projects never turned into a super cool profitable jewelry business. Well, it did for the mother-daughter team of Angela and Renee over at Cool Water Gems. My mom and I made Shrinky Dinks and those horrible potholders out of (what I only assume now were) hair ties. Angela and Renee make gorgeous and affordable jewelry and they were nice enough to send me a bracelet, do an interview AND sponsor a little giveaway here. So, without further ado, here's Renee and Angela.
