Skills and Techniques
I have at one point or another tried almost every conceivable craft with one noted exception, I cannot KNIT.... Crochet?sure. Paint? yep! collage? absolutely. Scrap booking? yep. Beading? sure. Sewing? yessiree. Silver smithing,soap making,candle making,card making,floral arranging,glass painting,murals.....I could go on and on but I cannot KNIT it is a flaw, I know, maybe when I am really old I will finally be able to learn to knit.

Get to Know
Hmmm.... what to say about myself,well I am married to a prior enlisted now naval officer, we have been married 20 years (and counting) I have two sons, Sam is 13 and Chris is almost 19 and a step daughter Kelli who is turning 20 really soon. Oh and lets not forget the dog, Little bear is a 9 year old black schiperrke who loves to eat and is a little on the round side. I have been creating jewelry for about as long as I can remember. Started out with origami necklaces made from gum wrappers, then little rings made from lead solder created in the back of my dads t.v. repair shop (I probably had a good case of lead poisoning from those) then beading, then silversmithing. My current fascination has been with resin,I am enamored with it's ability to create depth and magnify colors in any piece I put it on(and trust me I have put it on everything,lol). Don't get me wrong, resin can be a cruel mistress until you really get to know her quirks, but then, it's so much fun. I work with plastic and resin mostly, with some metal work and up cycled items thrown in here and there. My training is in classic silver smithing but this day in age you just about have to mortgage your house in order to buy a sheet of silver, resin on the other hand is greatly affordable and I can make pieces that you won't have to sell your first born child to own. Well hope you enjoy perusing my creations, you will find a lot of butterflies, trees and book related themes because those are the things that I like. I have had a shop on etsy for about 4 1/2 years and had a shop on 1000 markets for about 2 years. Feel free to hop on over there and check out my feedback and sold items, you will find me at Underglass.etsy.com or Resin8ingdarkness.etsy.com ,Sadly 1000 markets closed their venue, but it was fun while it lasted
