Former jewelry designer incorporating my sister's amazing miniature sculpture & bas reliefs of dogs, horses, sheep, etc plus antique buttons with a special emphasis on Greyhounds and Scottish Deerhounds. No longer try to make my living as an artist (phew). Teach knitting at The Yarn Lounge here in Richmond and try to pass along my love of textiles and the deep history of women's work. Think Etsy is wonderful and my life would have been completely different if it had existed 30 or 40 years ago.
And yes, I really was born in 1945 and my profile picture is recent. I have excellent aging genes and the picture is tiny.
