I've been making jewelry off and on for over 20 years. I decided to go into business for myself after running out of friends and family to give my pieces to, and after many suggestions to "sell your stuff!". I primarily work with wire, but am venturing into silver smithing as well. Silver metal clay as also become a passion of mine.
My artistic interests and passions go back to my early childhood. My dad was a telephone installer and I remember making rings and things out of the many colors of spare wire that he'd bring home for us to play with. I even designed my own comic strip when I was 12 years old! I'm always drawing and thinking of new things to make.
Stones, gems, and minerals have also been of great interest to me. My poor husband can't walk on a beach with me without coming home with pockets full of rocks! I love setting stones into metal and making wearable art. I'm constantly amazed what this earth has made, and I love sharing it with everyone in the form of jewelry, hair accessories, and art.
