ONCE UPON A TIME,

The only jewelry I use to wear was a small petite pearl necklace. Being petite, I thought that was all I could wear. I was so envious of those women who proudly and flauntingly wore beautiful chunky, bold and distinctive jewelry. I decided to pull myself up to my full 5' 1 1/2" and take a class in jewelry making and wire wrapping. That was over 10 years ago.

My shawl slides and hair slides are beautifully designed with variations of the transfixing spiral from heavy gauge aluminum. Each one is hand formed, hammered and pounded for strength. I use all genuine semi-precious gem stones of high quality to enhance with color and wire wrap these to my pieces. All unique and all my original designs. Just GORGEOUS!

I have a busy life. family always comes first. My other interests are; Tole painting, China Painting, I dabble in Chinese Brush Painting, sewing, quilting, metal etching, metal shaping, gardening, pasta making, and I make fabulous pies! I am a sucker for BIRDS! I have also mixed concrete for my husband many a time. Life is an adventure with the good and the bad all mixed in. I have learned to dodge and weave and just plain old buck up.

Thank you so much for visiting my shop, come back soon.
