Skills and Techniques

I am a Jill of All Trades. I love to mix techniques from different crafts to create something unusual. I not only crochet and bead but I can paint and sew. But I'm loving the crochet right now. The Guild of Good Lucks Owls are so fun to make.

Get to Know

I've always crafted something or other since I was a kid. I think the first thing I learned was crochet then macrame and sewing. I still work these crafts but have since added many other things. There's not a spot in or around my home that doesn't have something that I've painted, repurposed, upholstered or otherwise made mine. Five years ago, shortly after I made a huge dragonfly for my garden out of 6AWG copper I saw an ad for jewelry making. I applied. The owners were skeptical that I could wirewrap. First try and I was hired. I've been making jewelry ever since. Since that time I've experimented with all kinds of styles and techniques. I like mixing the techniques and using uncommon items to create my own style. Recently I transitioned from beaded jewelry to crochet accessories to the delight of my local customers. I'm having lots of fun creating the owls for the Guild of Good Luck Owls. I create each set of eyes and beak individually. I think that give them a happy, friendly look, don't you?
