Get to Know

I have been involved in something creative since my grandmother taught me to sew when I was 8 yrs old. This has evolved into other crafting including knitting, crocheting, and eventually floral design for 20+ years.
While I 'work' in a regular job setting, I find that my creative endeavors makes the days more pleasant. Jewelry has always been a passion and now I am sharing this passion with you. I make each piece that I sell, whether using artisan glass items, found items or vintage beads and findings. No two pieces are alike, and none can be duplicated.
Recently I have started working with metal - forging, bending, hitting it with a torch!! Dangerous work but oh, so beautiful (if it works out right). I have participated in showings in or near this area for over 10 years.

My entire life has been spent in the Midwest, specifically in or near St Louis, MO. I love the changing seasons and the colors and moods the seasons can evoke. However, whenever possible, we travel to the Caribbean so you will more than likely find a great deal of ocean colors in my work.

I believe that there is nothing sadder than an opportunity wasted. Special people have come in and out of my life while leaving their indelible stamp on my heart. We should cherish those we care about and tell them each day.

We only get one time around on this merry-go-round of life so we need to do whatever we do with passion, fervor and intensity. Carpe Diem!
