The name Three Graces Designs is derived from the “Three Graces” in Greek mythology believed to embody beauty, joy and good cheer. It is also a tribute to the women in my life that embody these characteristics- my three sisters, Cindy, Deb and Jeanne and my Mom, Grace, a knitting-wonder from whom I have inherited much of my craftiness.

When not creating jewelry, I work as a consultant on affordable housing and community development projects. Besides jewelry, my other true love is hanging with my ten nieces and nephews.
