Get to Know

Welcome to MiMi's world, where the sun shines every day and a new creation is usually born.<br /><br />My home studio in Texas, has had many lives. From daughter's bedroom, to doll restoration studio, this peaceful haven "grew up" to be a multi-faceted retreat for my interests.<br /><br />In this wonderful room, I find a peaceful place for my interests: genealogy, website design, jewelry and jewelry creation. I also dabble in knit and crochet novelty items.<br /><br />My jewelry is made of sterling and fine silvers, vermeil, swarovsky crystals, fine seed beads and semi-precious stones. Often, I incorporate a special pendant made by another artist. Most of my pieces are unique, funky, whimsical, and fun.<br /><br />My studies include work under artists such as Sallye Ann Blye; Maggie Meister; Elizabeth Knodle; Don Nelson; and Kip Maley.<br /><br />I am a certified silver clay instructor, belonging to The Art Clay Guild. I am also a member of the Craft Guild of Dallas and Wild West Bead Society.<br /><br />Please come visit us often!
