About

Crazed bead addict and lover of old stuff!

Creating jewelry is my passion -especially pieces with an antique appearance. I love my little Etsy shop and having the opportunity to share my designs with you.

I'm self taught and have worked in several mediums - drawing, painting, floral design - but creating jewelry is what I love best. My love for Art Nouveau is evident in much of my jewelry, but inspiration comes from everywhere and at anytime!

Lately I've been fascinated with the challenge of transforming old bits of hardware and other everyday items (found objects) into jewelry pieces - anything with chippy old paint makes my heart go pitty pat. :)

Stay tuned to see what I come up with next!…
