This Circle is about other jewelry-makers I really love and wanted to share with everyone.

Born in San Francisco. Started my art career at age four, publishing a drawing in the San Francisco Chronicle!

What I love most (besides dogs, bunnies, elephants, and some people) is creative life. I get my inspiration from others a lot of the time, so I enjoy helping inspire them too. "Enabling" might be a better term; gifting them with a class they want, sharing materials, sharing knowledge....an ineffable exchange that happens when you click with another artist.

I'm a jewelry designer, maker, beadweaver, dangly-earrings crafter, you name it. I've been using vintage jewelry in my work for years, combining it with new and old beads, making landfills a little smaller. Seems everyone's doing that today;…

I've been using vintage jewelry in my work for years, combining it with new and old beads, making landfills a little smaller. Seems everyone's doing that today; it's GREAT, as long as one respects the integrity and value of the vintage piece of jewelry you use. Or if it's something nobody would ever wear again, do whatever you want! Remember, these could easily be valuable bits and pieces; don't cut off that pin if you don't really have to. Don't take a necklace or bracelet apart unless it's cheap stuff, or broken. Take care and respect your materials.

I love to collaborate with other artists, learn from them, be inspired and try to inspire, help them bloom if they need a hand, share, and do trades. There's room for everyone. Pass it forward. ♥
