About

I love fantasy and science fiction. I've been attending science fiction conventions and wearing costumes to them for 25 years. I've been designing and creating handcrafted jewelry since around 1970 when I began with love bead necklaces and spoon handle rings and now I make amazing bead embroidered brooches and necklaces. I love to create whimsical earrings too.

Back in the 1980s I had a little gift shop in Portland and I developed a line of stuffed animal patterns to sell through craft magazines (no internet back then). Now I sell the patterns here on ETSY, (see my new store http://FantasyCreations.etsy.com) so you can make your own unique stuffed animals.

I have earned over six years of experience with internet sales. I have had an ebay store for over six years now (I have more than 2000 100% positive feedbacks on ebay) and over…

I have earned over six years of experience with internet sales. I have had an ebay store for over six years now (I have more than 2000 100% positive feedbacks on ebay) and over three years ago I opened three shops on ETSY. People here are very supportive and fun to communicate with! This is a great community! I work on becoming a success here by shipping very quickly and communicating well.

My customers have told me that my jewelry designs speak to something deep inside them. I incorporate symbolism, myth, and archetypes, (and sometimes whimsey into my work). Plus, I love animals! I hope you'll love these expressions of my creative energy and become one of my new customers.

I also have an ETSY store named Starfirehawk (go to http://starfirehawk.etsy.com) where I sell commercial supplies.

I am a member of the BBEST Etsy street team for Baby Boomers.

I love to create treasuries with fantasy art and design pieces I've discovered on etsy.

I think it is important to communicate with customers, so be sure to "convo" me if you have any questions.

If you put me into a treasury I'd love to know and would not consider the convo to be spam.

I am a cat owner. They bring me great joy. This is absolutely a non-smoking household. I don't use purfume.
