 About Koryn ~  I am a wife to my military husband of 24 years and mom to 4 great kids, all nearly grown and in college. We have moved all over the world during my husband's Air Force career, but are now happily settled in Northern Virginia where I work from home full time in my The Taffy Box basement studio.    I began making jewelry when my children were quite small. It started with beading mother's bracelets, which I still make and sell, and in 2007 I learned the art of metal stamping and have been hooked ever since!  Where did the name The Taffy Box come from? A few years ago I was a preschool teacher and would bring my beaded creations to work to sell to other teachers. I carried them around in an actual taffy box I had gotten on a beach vacation. The name has been with me ever since!

In 2008 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a year of treatment to include surgery, reconstruction, and chemo therapy.  I am now a patient advocate and fund raiser for various breast cancer organizations, raising awareness and educating young women about the risks associated with the disease. I am also a counselor with Y-Me's Network of Strength. I have blogged about my experiences at My Story, and there you can read archives of my diagnosis and treatment as well as a page about what you can do to help lower your own risks of developing breast cancer.
