I must create!

I knew I was going to be an artist from day one.

I love and enjoy making jewelry and find myself totally lost in the process. Since I never want it to become 'a grind', and therefore no longer creative for me, I have a limited number of different, quality pieces available. It's always a mystery to know in what direction my 'muse' will take me; or when. Aren't you curious as to what will be at my store next? Who wouldn't be, I certainly am! Please visit often as I haven't a clue as to what I'm going to be making or posting next.

I was born in New Jersey but grew up in CT. I now live by the shore in Milford, CT with my wonderful husband and fabulous cat.
