Very pretty--shiny and sparkly yet very vintage-looking. Just what I've been searching for--and a great price!!
Very nice quality. Well packaged. Fast ship.

Here's the Story of Me (in a nutshell):
I was born to be a queen, to rule with benevolence, power and grace. I am perfectly suited to the life of luxury and intellectual refinement. I'd have been a composite of Marie Antoinette and Catherine the Great.
Instead, something went terribly wrong: I was born in the 20th century, in a state 6000 miles from my rightful home, to pauper parents, neither of whom graduated from high school. They worked in the janitorial profession. As is often the case, history began to repeat itself. I grew up cleaning toilets and picking up trash. I was on my own from the age of 14 and I dropped out. In my early 20's I began the arduous journey of reversing the pattern I was born to.
I have two Associate of Arts degrees, one in Liberal Arts and one in Art History. I've traveled all over Europe (where I was supposed to have been born), worked as a draftsman for 15 years and gave birth to a prince named Julian. I raised him with love and dedication. He's in his third year of college!
I've been around for well over half a century now and plan to continue to live for a very long time, until one day, I am finally able to sit on my proverbial throne and rein with dignity.
With Warmest Regards,
San Francisco, CA, USA
Update June 29, 2016: My baby graduated from college last month and as they say, I'm over the moon! I'm working everyday but not too hard :) I am currently obsessed with metal tassels (and tassels of all sorts) and am making about 75 of them for sale in my shop. I am planning to work on some of my handmade jewelry after my work on the tassels and I'm also working on providing several new jewelry making supplies for the very astute customers and connoisseurs who shop with me. If you want to chat, send me a convo, I'm all about it :)
With Warm Regards,
Around the web
I am attracted to a variety of disciplines, from mathematics to evolutionary biology but I was born to be an artist.
