About

I was born and raised on Vancouver Island. I have always lived between the mountains and the ocean. I can't imagine not being able to see at least one of them everyday. In my early 20's a dormant obsession awoke and my life began to change. You see, when I was in grade 3, the lunch monitor came in for a little show and tell I suppose and what she brought was a coffee can full of tumbled and polished stones. Oh there was quartz, tiger eye, rose quartz, amethyst, you know the whole bit was in there shining, beckoning, whispering to me. It took all the moral strength my 9 year old self could muster not to steal a stone. Oh I was full of resentment that she didn't give us each a shiny lovely pebble. She had a million!! So I shut that intense longing down right where it started. Flash forward to 1995, I left the comfort/terror of my hometown and moved to the city.

I was born and raised on Vancouver Island. I have always lived between the mountains and the ocean. I can't imagine not being able to see at least one of them everyday. In my early 20's a dormant obsession awoke and my life began to change. You see, when I was in grade 3, the lunch monitor came in for a little show and tell I suppose and what she brought was a coffee can full of tumbled and polished stones. Oh there was quartz, tiger eye, rose quartz, amethyst, you know the whole bit was in there shining, beckoning, whispering to me. It took all the moral strength my 9 year old self could muster not to steal a stone. Oh I was full of resentment that she didn't give us each a shiny lovely pebble. She had a million!! So I shut that intense longing down right where it started. Flash forward to 1995, I left the comfort/terror of my hometown and moved to the city. A beloved friend gave me a beautiful wee carved wooden box filled with little tumbled stones. My passion was ignited! And now I was an adult with means to legally acquire that which I desired. So years went by and I collected crystals and gems and hunks of this and that. I held them while I tried to meditate, I slept with them in my pillow case, I put them in my pockets and I left them lying around in every imaginable spot in my series of short lived homes. It was 2004 when I moved into my current home and there was a high end semi precious bead store in the neighborhood and they sent out these amazing post cards in the mail. Well one look at that card and it was all over for me. I signed up for a wire wrapping class and I haven't been able to stop. So please! Buy my work. =) I love making jewellery using these beautiful, magical pieces of our Great Mother Earth. Beauty, Healing and Evolution. That is what it is all about.

I am also blessed in that I am the mother of sweet Sadie. She is the sweetest gift and challenge that could have ever come into my life. She inspires me to take my creativity and healing to the next level and the next and the next.

Please don't hesitate to contact me, I would love to make a custom piece for you or help you set your intention into any piece that I have already created.
