About

I am a mother of wonderful triplets, Tim, Caitlin, and Tyler, who have been my love and passion for 27 years. I have always enjoyed working with my hands and creating, but with a full time teaching job and 3 kids, I did not always have room for craft supplies around the house. I have retired from teaching, after 30 years, and now my living room has an 8 foot work bench and supplies everywhere. Usually there is no room to eat at the kitchen table.
My kids and I love the outdoors, and travel to the ocean to camp whenever we can. Animals are another love. I have rescure cats, feed all the birds in the neighborhood, and have rehabbed babies and injured birds back into the wild. I currently have 17 beautiful doves, that came from the 3 original rescue doves that had their wings clipped. They fly free now, and come and go from my yard.

I think my jewelry has an organic, bohemian feel. It has evolved as I have found new and exciting products. I am drawn to ethnic beads. I enjoy starting with one bead or color, and finding others to compliment it. Pounding, torching, sawing, and bending metal is a wonderful thing, and I get excited about seeing it change. I love tools...hammers, torches, saws, pliers!
This is a new, scary, and exciting thing to show my work to the public. It took me a long time just to show it to friends.
The shop is now 2 years old, but I still feel like it’s new!
I hope you find something you enjoy!
