I have always been fascinated with beautiful jewelry, antiques & glass. About 10 years I began to put it alltogether, resulting in a beautiful new form of art. I took several glass classes to learn the art of making glass beads, also known as "lampworking". With this new skill, I created beautiful necklaces with my one-of-a-kind beads using Swarovski crystals, 14K gold and 99.9 fine silver findings. In the year 2000 I added to my background by becoming certified in PMC )precious metal clay). My certification is with Rio Grande and PMC connection.I learned how to make my own frame work, solder, and design using 14K gold and99.9 silver. With keum-boo( the technique of adding goldover silver) and plique-a-jour enameling I have been able to further add to the to designs of my own jewelry. In order to take my jewelry designing to a higher level and be very uniqueabout my design in jewelry, I use only the best beads, crystals andother materials. I have found a new appreciation for vintage and costume jewelry and find that they have more character than newer beads and pieces. The history will never be created exactly the same and their uniqueness only adds to that of my own creations. I make the best efforts possible to ensure that my beads and other pieces are truly vintage, not reproductions. Since I began to collect vintage jewelry, I have also become a jewelry dealer. I focus on vintage pieces that I find in many places, the most common of which are estate sales, flea markets, antique shows, garage, sales and thrift stores, among many others. My favorite items to sell are the signed designers, although I am learning howto recognize jewelry from designers that didn't sign their jewelry. My future goal is to be able to have my jewelry collection recognized for itsworkmanship and uniqueness. I have several affiliations: Member of The Sarasota Bead Society of Florida, Member of PMC Connection Member of the International Society of Glass Beadmaker's( ISGB) Member of NAA( National auctioneer association) Certified to teach PMC(PMC Connection) Certified to teach PMC(Rio Grande) Teach lampworking classes Volunteer at The Women's exchange in Sarasota, Florida.

Though I have a great love for making vintage jewelry and collecting it, My first shop Creative Gatherings seems to gravitate to a majority of Vintage Wedding dresses and vintage head pieces.
