I have always loved little objects- shiny, iridescent pretty things, so making jewelry was a natural way to connect with lovely things. When I started making jewelry 20+ years ago, I wondered if making a "product " was the right thing to do with my career- shouldn't I be saving the environment; helping make the world a better place? But I couldn't help myself- it's what i love to do. I realized that in fact; after food, shelter, and clothing~ personal adornment was an important factor in humanity. it is a way to enhance your beauty and attract others, a means to identify with a group or culture, a personal expression of your individual tastes and aesthetic. It makes you feel good- and what is better than that? So, I may not be saving the world as much as I would like; I can only hope to beautify the world in my tiny way- on you, expressing yourself, and loving little shiny things. Live your dream; we get one shot in this life.
