At a young age I was inspired to be creative by a very special Grandma. She taught me to knit, crochet, and sew. Eventually I gravitated toward other crafts. I remember the first day I walked into a bead store. I was in heaven looking at all the different shapes and colors. I started making jewelry as a hobby. I was often giving it as gifts to family and friends. I also made a lot of my own jewelry since my nickel allergy makes it difficult for me to wear a lot of the jewelry found in the stores.
I have since branched out into glass fusing and working with raw metals. It amazes me how pieces of glass can go into the kiln looking rough, and come out beautiful. I am also fascinated with working with metal and will slowly be adding hand made sterling and copper jewelry made from wire and sheet metal.
Over the years I have built up a wide variety of skills designing custom jewelry pieces for customers with a diverse range of preferences, including everything from earrings, necklaces, lanyards, bracelets, jewelry repairs, and hair accessories. I've also done projects in metal stamping and have made custom wedding pieces.
I take care to make sure each piece of jewelry is well-made and strive to exceed customer expectations.
