My creative side always wants an outlet so when I took a break from costume designing I started playing with beads at my daughter Sunny's babysitter's house and making fused glass with my mom. We started selling our simple jewelry at the Artists Market in Salt Lake City and a few other local street fairs. I then left my professional teaching job, packed up Sunny and moved back to Olympia to sell my jewelry designs full time! Here I am years later designing, making and selling jewelry at 25-35 art shows a year, traveling around WA state, Oregon, Idaho and Montana and even selling to over 200 stores. It's amazing that I jumped into an unpredictable passion/profession and it has supported Sunny and I for all this time! Thank you life!!
Update: I have returned to teaching at a public elementary school, but I'm still making jewelry! I gotta stay creative to stay happy!…
