I worked at U.S. Fish and Wildlife & Geonex North American Operations as a wetlands mapper. Through that employment I learned how very important our wetlands are to the health of the planet & the waterways. And also to the survival of our endangered wildlife. And yes! I'm a tree hugger! That job eventually led me to work as a defense mapper several years ago. It was very interesting work, but not as fun as creating jewelry & art.

I love to crochet, knit, sew, (on occasion), & cross stitch, but haven't crafted cross stitch since I started working with, & selling jewelry on Etsy & Artfire. I have cross stitch designs on the "back burner" & I will, eventually, share those designs & list them for sale.

I started experimenting with jewelry-making several years ago, when I went to a jeweler & wanted something done to a piece of jewelry. The jeweler wasn't able to fix the piece, so I just did it myself! And that started my love of jewelry-making, & my bead obsession. I'm always looking for unusual beads & on occasion, I'll share new finds with you & list them for sale under jewelry making supplies.
