Well hello! Thanks for checking out my shop!

**************************************************

Welcome to my wee shop. I like to make all kinds of things. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin with an art degree in Metalsmithing and Jewelry. Metal is my first love, but my work in metal consists of holloware and more elaborate jewelry pieces. Here you will find a lighter, kitschier side inspired by my love of vintage jewelry pieces.

I've been making art and crafts my whole life. I'm not happy unless I'm creating! And I'm constantly creating so I'm a pretty happy person! I love it all- I crochet, knit, sew,…

I've been making art and crafts my whole life. I'm not happy unless I'm creating! And I'm constantly creating so I'm a pretty happy person! I love it all- I crochet, knit, sew, glue, solder, recycle, bead. I'm easily distracted and constantly multi-tasking.

I love color and get inspiration from the great color combinations I see around me or the strange visions I have in my head!
My other big inspiration is from the people around me; many of the things I make were originally gift ideas for friends or things I've made for myself.

Some of my favorite things are cowboys, metal- especially copper, birds, trees, acorns, farms, colors lined up according to the color wheel, color combinations, traveling, road trips, green green grass, cooking dinner, front porches, thrift stores, biking, camping, plants, vegetables and fruit, sushi, avocados, hot hot hot weather, and my puppy.
