Cousin Creative Circle Ambassadors

Cousin Corporation of America, a premier manufacturer of jewelry making components, has chosen a select group of jewelry makers for its inaugural Creative Circle ambassador program for the 2012-13 year.

Cousin received an overwhelming amount of applications for the coveted slots and the vetting process took five weeks in order to review all of the submissions. The ambassadors were chosen by the selection committee based on their unique contributions to the program, commitment to jewelry making and social media and networking savvy.

The 2012-2013 Creative Circle™ ambassadors are: Suzette Bentley, Lisa Crone, Dr. Gail Devoid, Shelly Owen and Patty Squillante. The five ambassadors will have a platform to share ideas with the product development team, receive Cousin products to incorporate into their work, preview upcoming programs and provide feedback about products before they go to market.

“We are excited to launch our inaugural Ambassador program with these highly talented jewelry makers,” said Jeff Cousin, President. “Cousin is an industry leader with a strong reputation for providing quality products and unique inspiration. Together with our ambassadors we look forward to growing the Cousin brand and keeping the craft of jewelry making relevant, enjoyable and innovative.”

The ambassadors were officially welcomed by the Creative Circle™ team on August 2nd and are currently highlighted on Cousin’s website, and their Facebook page,

It seems one can wait whole lifetime for something like this to come along.  I have to say, I am completely humbled by this opportunity. To my fellow ambassadors, I look forward to working with and getting to know each of you.

The generosity of this company is amazing.  They sent us all a massive amazing goodie box full of beads and findings.  Also we all received a beautifully framed certificate, a flash drive, a coffee mug, an inspirational book, a lovely necklace, a leather bound journal with a pen and pencil, and a personal letter of congratulations from Jeff Cousin, owner of Cousin Corporation.  All of which arrived just two days before my birthday!  What a birthday present!

I am looking forward to working with the Cousin Corporation and will be keeping you all updated along the way!
