Sunday Brunch with Dean Custom Designs

For our very first Sunday Brunch interview we have invited Dean Custom Designs. You can get to know more about her and her products reading the following interview. And, be sure to check out her shop on Etsy for her wonderful line of Pursekeys.

Tell us a little about yourself:

I am married to man of my dreams!! I have a beautiful 16 year old daughter who just loves the fact I can make her really "cool" stuff!!

Tell us about your product.

My Purskey Line started out because I could not find a cell phone charm or purse charm that looked pretty!! I decided that why not try and make one myself! I went to a local beading store where they were most helpful in teaching me how to make a hook and I bought the prettiest purple czech glass for my very first cell charm!!

How did you start out creating?

I really enjoyed making my cell charm and wanted to make more!!! The problem was how expensive everything was!! I went on ebay and hit the jackpot with some really awesome quality beads and charms!!

What is your favorite aspect of running your own business?

I do not know that I have a favorite aspect of running my own business!! I enjoy making the Purskeys and really love to see one sell!!! I am not large enough at this

What direction would you like to go in the future?
I would really love to see everyone with a Purskey on their purse or Key chain. I am also trying to branch out by using the Purskeys on bridal bouqets, or vases with floral arrangement! I am currently working with a local florist on this last bit!!!

Where can we find you?

You can find me on
