About

Ever since I could remember, I have always loved creating art. I was always coloring and drawing when I was a kid. In high school I was introduced to a variety of different mediums. I was also introduced to stringing beads. in college I majored in studio art with an emphasis of painting and drawing.

Someone suggested that I should make feather headbands and I am so glad that I heeded her suggestion. I love making them. They are time consuming to produce, but the end result is worth it. Every headband is different (like my jewelry) and I make only one of each style. I make copies on request. Speaking of jewelry, I have been stringing beads for years, and just recently I started incorporating chain. I have also started using other metals like brass and copper.

I look forward to thinking of new creations and expanding my knowledge in all the beautiful crafts out there.
