About

When I was a very small child, I used to watch my father make jewelry for hours. I always had projects going - I had a collection of paper clip structures and soda pop tab animals. I have always been happiest when making something!
It is the only time that I have any grace or any patience.

So I made my first serious piece of jewelry when I was twelve, and the rest is history - I was absolutely hooked!

A true pyromaniac, I have a special relationship with my torch :)

I'm a graduate of the University of West Florida with a Bachelor's in Comprehensive Marketing. I also have a Graduate Gemologist degree from the Gemological Institute of America. I've made hundreds and hundreds of one-of-a-kind pieces in a successful family jewelry store…

I married a man I love very much, have three children, and have a successful and fulfilling family life.

I have achieved a lot of things that I planned for myself.....and now I don't know what to do!

A neurotic over-achiever, I find myself without a goal. It is maddening. I started to have trouble sleeping at night. I find myself extremely unhappy for no reason at all. I've been buying all this ....STUFF..... for years without a clear purpose of what I would use it for. I can truly wage a daunting war with myself.

So I pulled out all the miscellaneous wire and beads and random things that I had in a bin under my bed, and I STARTED WRAPPING!!

I LOVE IT.

It quiets my mind. It makes my muse sing. The restlessness inside me is quiet for a little while when I get the opportunity to play with wire.

And this is what I hope for all people, no matter what our inner demons or our source of discontent....to find happiness and fulfillment however briefly. Peace and war??? NO.
PEACE AND WIRE!!!!
