About my Artwork and my Jewelry:
I have two personal rules regarding my items.

The first is that I'll never make anything I wouldn't want to wear or display myself. I realize different people have different tastes, but if I'm not proud to wear or display something then why on earth would I try to sell it to someone else? This occasionally makes it hard for me though- I've often had to physically restrain myself from walking into my display room, picking something up, and putting it on, or in the case of my paintings hanging them on my wall or carrying my ATCs around with me all over the place. Sometimes I just can't help myself. ;) (This also means I'll be kinda sad to see some of these things go.)

My second rule is I'll never make the exact same thing twice. If you see something that's been sold and want one "exactly like it" then I really am sorry. :( There are several reasons for this. The biggest one (and I feel like a horrible person saying this) is that I get bored *very* easily. I also appreciate the fact that everyone wants to feel special and own something that is 100% unique and beautiful and completely theirs. Call it selfishness if you want, but I prefer to think of it as a little piece of well-deserved happiness.
For jewelry, there's also the fact that I purchase a large number of 100% handmade beads, and I'll make my own on occasion. I order my beads from Fire Mountain Gems in Colorado, but I dislike picking and choosing what I want (I can't even make up my mind at McDonalds) so I almost always get the "surprise" bead variety selections- lampwork glass, fun natural "rock beads," various crystal beads, etc. As with anything handmade, the chances of any bead being exactly like another are pretty slim. I'm lucky if I find two that match enough for earrings. :D
And one look at my paintings will show you that my "technique" leaves a lot to chance- I couldn't paint two of these exactly the same even if I tried.

If you see something you want and it's been sold, do not be discouraged! I'm more than willing to work with you to create something similar- but something that will be just for you! Just ask!
