I live in the northern woods of Minnesota and have so for, well, almost my entire life with the exceptions going off to school and learning more of the country of the USA. I loved to travel when I was younger but now enjoy the peace of the Minnesota woods and water.

Designing and creating Stained glass windows and art for customers has been the most enjoying till I started using my knowledge of the art in producing jewelry and components. Having the equipment of welders, torches, irons, and the many other tools made making components easy. I will produce the best of the best of quality for you as I do for myself to use in my designs.
Working with the local Art studios and shops all over the USA I get to meet many new people but Etsiers seem to be the most interesting to me...I love to see their imagination bring very interesting art together. When teaching I got to see all this cooped up imagination come to light and now I get to enjoy watching it happen here on Etsy without taking myself from my studio. My studio is full of windows and light looking out to the woods that bring in many animals...wild life is amazing! They are just as interested in you as you in them. How they care and preen each other...they have the same feelings as humans do with out all the extra baggage humans bring onto themselves. Love one another and caring is so simple and the pay off is so rewarding.
My jobs in life has been Electronics of large main frame computers, Real Estate, Fashion, plus all the extras we as young people start out with to experience the work force.
Fashion...brings a smile to myself now. I sit here typing my profile with my Designer ...Nothing! My fashion co workers would be shocked to see me now in my later years...mismatched, worn and LOVED clothing.
However, my jewelry is of many. I like supporting new artist when I see things that appeal to me...weird and different! Makes people take a second look at your jewelry other then just wearing the same as everyone else. It don't hurt to be different and design different.
My love to you all and hope your love of the art finds you just as excited as I am in designing.
