Get to Know

As an English major, mother, teacher, librarian and now designer of book-themed jewelry, I find joy in just about every aspect of books--what they say, how they make me feel, arguing about what they mean, and the tactile sensation of holding them--and when you love something it's hard not to want to share it with everyone.

I enjoy finding old or new pieces of jewelry (or just about anything else!) that I can refashion into something that is fun to wear. It's like putting a puzzle together--fun yet challenging. Yes, I do have to have all of the pieces spread out in front of me: on the kitchen table, or the floor, or the bed... It can be a mess but what a joy when a piece of jewelry comes together and I've created something of beauty or something to make people smile.

And when I grow up and have a big house in the country I want to adopt at least 1 dog from every breed. And HAVE lots of shelves for my 47 teapots and 4000+ books.
