Beth Brown Fidalgo »
My name is Beth Fidalgo. I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt, former elementary teacher, and a grandmother. Three years ago, my life changed in an instant. I found a lump! I freaked out! My cancer was ER +, PR+, and HER2+. On my 55th birthday, I had a double mastectomy. I think the worst part was losing my hair. I did not have reconstruction right away.
After I finished chemo I found an amazing plastic surgeon; she has a heart and cares. She changed my life. I did not know how depressed I had become looking at those ugly scars.
I am so lucky that my husband has been by my side all through this journey.
I started my jewelry business to help pay for my medical expenses. I am disabled and not able to have a "normal" job. I turned a new hobby into a way that I could help pay these medical bills off.
I love making beautiful pieces of jewelry for others. I have ready-made necklaces, bracelets, and earrings but I love custom orders also. Most of my pieces are one of a kind but many times I can recreate it again with a little variation.

My name is Kelly. Working too many hours, dealing with so much stress, that's corporate America. In June 2009 I had a wake-up call. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I was devastated. It was that moment when I decided my job and breast cancer wasn't going to steal any joy from my life. I left my job, enrolled in photography classes shortly after my bi-literal mastectomy.
Photography became my passion, my new business, my life. I don't photograph subjects or scenes; I photograph the way they make me feel. It's honest - and it's the best way to describe my approach to expressing art. I'm a kid at heart and enjoy making people smile and laugh. My camera is my constant companion. I enjoy quality time with my husband Scott and have found a great balance by incorporating his hobby of flying remote control helicopters with my love of capturing motion photography. If I could take one lesson I've learned from being a breast cancer survivor is that life is too short to not love what you are doing every day.
I take pride in my work; my 70-300mm lens is always attached to one of my cameras; I'm in love with the sky, the moon, sunsets, and clouds; I make sure lip gloss is in every camera bag I own; and I love living in flip flops, tank tops, and putting my toes in the sand!
