I fell into making and selling jewelry a few years back when I lived in Hawaii, and I haven't stopped since. I started out making nicely simple beaded pieces, gradually doing more with chainmaille, wire working, and learning to make my own lampwork beads. I never cease to be amazed at the incredible variety of colors, shapes and textures available to transform into something that fits into a casual lifestyle, an elegant night out, or a walk on the wild & funky side.
I seldom wear jewelry, but I LOVE to make it - it is peaceful, calming - and therapeutic. When someone likes my creations enough to want to buy and wear them... and even come back for more... to have that kind of validation of my work brings a very rewarding feeling.
Thank you for looking at my shop.
