About

I love my grandsons, my daughters, and my son-in-law. I love to do things with my hands. I love to paint, form wire, hold semi precious stones in all shapes and sizes. We have a shop in Madison called Relics where I cant seem to leave empty handed. There are so many things I enjoy and I get my inspiration from looking, being observant, watching others and my surroundings. There is so much to learn from looking. As a visual and tactile person I also crave to feel different textures so it's hard for me to visit museums where you cant touch, art openings where you cant touch, or any place that has a sign "please do not touch" On the other hand, being out in nature is full of looking and touching. I enjoy taking a break from my "day job" or creating objects by visiting nature as a great way to ground myself, breathe, and just "be". Then, it's time for friends and creating. The nice thing about creating jewelry is I can take it…

The nice thing about creating jewelry is I can take it with me. It's a very mobile type of craft, compared to painting in oils or even acrylics. Paints have fumes, are messy, and sometimes just too big to travel; but I can take a tray of stuff to work on anywhere. I also have a "day job" which I hope to one day retire from. As an adult I went to college at UW - Madison and graduated with a bachelors degree in Fine Arts. There my focus was painting and I never took a jewelry or metalsmith class! Well, here I am learning new things all the time about creating jewelry. Visit my shop, Crumcat, to see what I have recently created
