I am originally a country girl, born and raised in Lander, Wyoming. I'm still a country girl at heart but have lived in the Seattle area for almost 25 years.
My love of stones and pretty glass began at a very early age. My mom used to love to tell the story of how when I was very young I gathered rocks out of our back alley and took them around the neighborhood trying to sell them.
I love dabbling in all kinds of jewelry making from off loom weaving to wire wrapping to polymer and precious metal clay.
I get my inspiration from everywhere and anywhere I can. When I can't seem to come up with anything I'll look at nature seeing the colors that look beautiful together like a tree with dark dark brown bark and beautiful lavender flowers and go from there.
Sometimes I just stare at my beads and stones and a design will just come to me.
I also have been trying my hand at reconstructing…
