Always learning, always making things.

I've been making and selling my art to people since I was a teenager. Back then, my workshop was in my bedroom, using an old sink cabinet left over from my parents' kitchen remodel. I made doll house furniture, Christmas ornaments, stained glass windows, and painted landscapes on Mateus bottles and large rocks. (Don't judge me about the Mateus bottles... it was the seventies, LOL.)

When my son was little I turned to sewing, and produced muslin bunnies, Christmas stockings and potpourri pillows, as well as assembling and painting model kits for people at local comic shops.

Then I discovered Fire. Armed with my torch, I began making jewelry! I started with unique mineral cabochons and then tried setting broken china and glass. Another form of Fire came with my kiln and lampworking torch a few years ago, and now I'm playing with fused glass and lampworked glass beads.

Who knows what I'll be making next? *grins*

"Broken China" Custom Orders: Have a broken piece of Mom's or Grandmom's china and want to have something made from it? Convo me! While there are some types of china that don't cut well (like Mikasa or other "fine" china) most vintage china is workable. Send me a pic or let me know the pattern, and we'll talk! Most custom work is done within 2-4 weeks.
