About


I have always been an artistic person. My favorite subject in school was Art!
I have been making jewelry for over 20 years. I started out with friendly plastic and Fimo clay. I next learned to make seed bead earrings and beaded jewelry. In 2001 I took a small scale metal class at a local Jr college. That is when my whole world changed. I took classes at Cabrillo and MPC. I got networked into the world of jewelry classes. I then went on a two year class and workshop marathon. All of this around my day job! I used vacation hours to take many classes! During that two years I used my income tax return to buy substantial tools. I found many tools at yard sales and flea markets. Not to mention artist that were moving or retiring.
I joined the Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild and soon found myself as president.
I was the President for two years…

Then I decide to take what I had learned and apply it to "my style"...what do you think?
PS I still love to play with beads!
