Why the name Va Va Voom? For some it means just sexy but for me it is that and much more...it is a lift for the spirit! A lure to all of us with more than a hint of hedonist in our blood...the desire for fabulousness on grey days and in the sun...wow! Each piece is designed to enhance...in other words...you wear the piece of jewelry..it doesn't wear you!

All my VaVaVoom! jewelry treasures are one of a kind. I send them beautifully packaged in my signature purple box and tissue paper. If you have any questions please 'conversation' me. Thanks for looking..

Ten years ago I learned to design jewelry at Tukadeka Traders Bead Gallery in Wyoming where I lived and worked part time for awhile. There I honed my craft, designing jewelry for sale and learning a great deal about trade beads and natural gemstones. Later on I developed my own style, incorporating vintage pendants and appliques in some of my designs.

Painting portraits is my main career and has been for the last thirty years. Work has taken me all over the world, painting portrait commissions and painting for exhibition in Great Britain, Europe, Australia and the United States.

I admire beauty and creativity in all its forms, everywhere..combined with what the French call 'savoir vivre'..the knowledge of how to live, knowing oneself and having the courage to live as joyfully as you can.... with kindness, and generosity of spirit!

I am married to Rockabilly entertainer Ronnie Lee Twist, www.ronnieleetwist.co
and sing backing vocals in the band and love the music and glamor of that retro era. I am step mom to a talented teenager and three amazing cats!
