I found a great outlet to my love of handwork by working in a vintage costume house restoring and repairing vintage clothes. And like so many colleagues of mine, I love to make jewelry, too. Oh!

So you can imagine the collection we all have in our homes and gardens! Friends go on vacation, and what do they bring me? A handful of rocks from where they went! I really love that...!

So, for a few years now I've been making jewelry. First, just as gifts for loved ones and myself, then selling at fairs and shows. And my natural choice of medium is gemstones! Showcasing the beauty of the stones is my passion and muse. I don't know the metaphysical properties of the stones, because they all make me happy!
