I have always loved jewelry. A very long time ago in high school, I took some jewelry classes and truly enjoyed them. I found some bead stores (very few in those days) and made myself a few necklaces. Unfortunately, my life after high school lead me away from this wonderful hobby. At one point, I would say I lost my zest and started hunting for that special something that would give me that passion I so desired.

A friend of mine was a beader and with her help, I started once again and discovered that passion that was buried deep within. I was the mad beader for awhile but I was always looking for something else that would make my craft stand out.

I love working with gemstones and crystals and wire. What I really like is the fact that I can make these beautiful designs with just my hands, some pliers and wire cutters.

What did I discover from all this....That there is so much more out there to learn! So I am constantly looking for new ideas and then putting my spin on them.

My inspiration is definitely nature and art driven. The combination of colors that I see on my walks give me ideas for projects. I also am inspired by Eni Oken's designs.

I hope you will check out my store and mark it as a favorite and keep coming back to check out what's new!
