Susan Hackney launched Queen Beedz on July 1, 2017. Susan has been a lifelong learner and was looking for ways to keep the gray matter active as she eased her way into retirement. She has always had an interest in fashion and decided she wanted to learn how to make jewelry. She started making a few pieces and gave earrings & bracelets as Christmas gifts. The next thing you know, people were asking her to make additional items for them & all of a sudden she had a small business going.
