Barbara's Profile

About

Sparganium is a native wetland plant. As a retired wetland plant ecologist, I chose the name to honor the importance of wetlands in our habitat. (It's also a pretty word.)

Art and crafting has always been a large part of my life. Felted wool scarves are very wonderful to make, being visual and tactile at the same time. And then they can be worn! I've fallen in love with merino fiber. That is also what I spin. And I like to make jewelry that provides a bit of sparkly excitement without being too precious.
