I am also a computer programmer and web site developer, and I have a degree in astronomy & astrophysics. This may account for my undying love for all things science, angular and geometric ^_~.

Please visit my jewelry blog on blogspot! I frequently write about new experiments, new designs that I've fallen in love with, and projects I'm planning for the future.
