News & Views from The Peanut Gallery
My work room (which is off the kitchen) is fondly referred to as "The Peanut Gallery" due to my habit of chiming into conversations occurring in the kitchen, my family's favorite room in the house.
Here I work with seed beads in all the colors of the rainbow and in various sizes, as well as a variety of semi precious gemstone beads. This is where I bend wire, solder, drill, punch, squeeze, twist, hammer, braid, and embellish.
We have a 40 acre farm where we raise dairy goats and chickens and every thing must be productive. This is where I escape to make beautiful things whose only purpose is to be pretty and make me feel good.
Thank you for reading my About Page, and feel free to convo me, even if it is only to say "Hi!"

What does one say about one's husband? He is a 1st Sgt in the California National Guard. But he is so much more. He is everything I am not. He completes me.

Have trouble with metal sensitivity? There are now products available to coat your jewelry and keep it from reacting with your skin. In a pinch, simple clear finger-nail polish will work. Simply coat any part of the metal that comes into contact with your skin.
