Tulare, CA, United States
Living in CA allows me to enjoy the beach, bicycling, motorcycling (my own) and now marathons when I'm not with our family.
I love working with precious metal clay, polymer clay, knitting, photography and painting. Everyting I create is one of a kind.

As long as I can remember I have always enjoyed working with my hands. Whether it be gardening, baking, painting, sewing, knitting, photography,jewelry design, etc. I am the most content when I can get my hands all over a project.
In September 2001 my husband and I opened two bead shops and this was such an inspiring experience; many "want to be" designers came through our doors and it was unbelievable to see the talent and the passion that launched many careers in the jewelry art arena.
In late 2008 due to family matters on the opposite coast we sold one store and closed one but continue to sell jewlery designing supplies through my website www.oldtownbeads.com Hence, I have lots of jewelry designing supplies. I continue to seek the unique supplies to keep the selections fresh and finally I can play in my studio and make custom jewelry and keep my hands busy with knitting and photography in between.
Thank you for visiting my studio and may the blessings you have today be even greater tomorrow.
