Inviting joy into each day. Every day.
A very warm welcome to my shop!
I have always had a love of color…from those scented markers I used in grade school, to the colored pencils that I enjoyed organizing and reorganizing by shade as much as actually using, to all those lusciously colored paint tubes! And when I began working with beads ... oh, boy! ... I am immediately drawn to rich, saturated colors.
I began making jewelry for myself about twenty years ago when I had a tough time finding pieces I liked in the stores. That evolved into making gifts for family and friends. And those gifts led, in 2006, to selling my jewelry at local Saturday Markets.
My love of color has led to an on-going exploration about how colors are used in healing and spiritual practices. Many of us have a favorite color, or are drawn to different colors at various times depending on what we are facing. Every color vibrates at its own energetic frequency. You may already be familiar with the seven major chakras (energy-points) located along the spine. Each chakra is associated with a different color and is believed to impact a different aspect of our well-being. By wearing the colors associated with the chakras, we fortify those areas (just like putting on your heavy coat before you walk into the snowstorm). It is so fun to create pieces whose color combinations could buoy up our spirits and fortify us for various situations.

Many of my color combinations were originally captured in my sketchbook.
