Owner & designer of K.R.D Designs, Le'Shelle is a mother to an angel baby named Kaliyah. It was such a joyous and exciting time for her and her husband as they were expecting their first child together. During a routine 5-month checkup, that quickly changed when they found out that there would be some complications with the pregnancy. On that same day, they also found out that they were having a baby girl. Unfortunately, the complications worsened and within days, Le’Shelle was admitted into the hospital and placed on strict bed rest. Several days later, on Saturday March 16, 2013, Le'Shelle went into labor. Due to complications with labor, she had to have an emergency C-section. Unfortunately, Kaliyah did not make it. Le'Shelle never heard her baby cry, she never saw the color of her baby's eyes and she never got to take her baby home. All that remained were Kaliyah's ashes, pain and a box of memories of that day. As a mother, she was completely distraught. She did not see a way to get through this, but God did. He showed her the way. He placed the right people around her for support and He pointed her in the right direction to find herself again. On March 16, 2013, Le'Shelle knew her life would never be the same again.
As time went on, Le'Shelle knew that this healing process was not going to be easy. It was actually at work in a meeting when she discovered that she was being lead toward jewelry making. She definitely laughed it off at first, because she had never made jewelry before. Ever! Even though she had no experience with jewelry making, in August 2013 KRD Designs was born! Making jewelry helped Le'Shelle to mentally and emotionally handle going through her grieving process of losing a child. Though she will never stop missing her baby girl, it gives her great comfort and joy to make jewelry for all to enjoy. KRD Designs' pieces are made straight from the heart and truly one of a kind!
