About

Inspired by design...

I opened my etsy shop in the spring of 2012 at the urging of my son and daughter in law who love this site. I love it too! I hope over time my shop will succeed here as I am very impressed by the etsy community, and I am doing my part to support it and keep it vibrant. It is a part of my daily practice - to find my favorites, and make purchases, and of course a new listing as often as possible.

I began my jewelry business in 1986 while at home with 2 small children. It has been my full time occupation since then - and right through having a third child and becoming a sole support parent.

Actually, the birth of each of my three sons brought with it a huge flood of artistic energy - I wonder if I would have followed this profession if I had not had children... It was wonderful to work from home - and now with etsy more parents will be able to provide an income in this way!

I am totally self taught in my original style of continuous line wirework (my terminology). My passion for nature, sound, movement and all things artistic and creative definitely influence my designs and guide my life.

I have an ongoing passion for designing jewelry, springing from a desire to please people (and a background in marketing), and a willingness to consider all tastes and styles.

It is important to me that my jewelry expresses uncommon artistry - that it does not look like other jewelry - or maybe similar, but uniquely different. I do not work from books or use other people's designs.

In my creating I love to surprise myself - to be inspired by design. To be inspired literally means "to breathe in", and I live for those moments when I know I am in the flow of life-giving creativity.

I have many lines of jewelry - color changes (interchangeable discs), talismans honoring women, stonewear, studs, hoops, music and dance, designer and gallery.. And more coming all the time! Watch for my wedding line coming to etsy soon.

Over the past 25 years I have sold my jewelry to over 500 stores across Canada (a few in the states and elsewhere), and have taken part in over 150 retail craft shows, and at least a dozen trade shows.

I have my own website with on-line shopping, and I am happy to create a special etsy listing for you if you find something there not in my shop.

I am also keen on wholesale opportunities with real bricks and mortar businesses - anywhere in the world!

In 1993 I opened my Spirit Space Studio Gallery in Flesherton, Ontario - Canada. Our town is so small it is a hamlet (population 700), but we are at the crossroads of two busy highways, in a gorgeous tourist and weekender area. We have a lot of art in our area, and the best food anywhere!

If you check out TheArtMap.com maybe you'll want to come visit! You can also become a fan on facebook - Spirit Space Studio Gallery.I sometimes use Twitter - for jewelry with affirmations, and maybe I'll use it for my newest creations..

I am currently spending time exploring a wide range of mediums - fabric, glass, and mobiles amongst others.

I do consider etsy artists for my studio gallery, so don't hesitate to direct me to your shop if you are interested in selling wholesale.

I believe in online shopping as the future for many artists, although seeing things in person will always be my first choice. I am grateful that etsy has been created and that it is managed with such integrity and vision. Here's to success for all of us here!!
