About

I have enjoyed creating all of my life. I've always had to be involved in something creative no matter what else is going on in my life. I majored in music performance (classical) in college, have enjoyed creating stained glass windows and then found my love of creating sparklies (my term for fun, beautiful adornments that make me feel better when I wear them) about 15 years ago.

Aside from jewelry, I also have a passion for animals, especially horses. I own several and spend many hours each day caring for them. I breed a few mares each year and enjoy showing them and sharing them with others. I also hold a "regular" job where I am an IT Project Manager for a financial services firm.

Prior to opening my esty store, I sold my items on eBay. Although I no longer use eBay for any of my creations, I am proud of my 750+ positive feedback with NO negatives.
