About

Going out into the world, one creative adventure at a time!

I've been working with wire since I was about 14, using bits and pieces of scraps from the workshop. I borrowed a pair of pliers (I really was planning on giving them back) and it all went from there.

Like any artisan, I started small, making little things for my friends in the art room at lunch time, and eventually my mom encouraged me to start selling to a wider market. She even set up parties where we invited all her friends over to enjoy her delicious cooking and to peruse my collection. She's been my biggest fan in all this.

When I was in college for hairstyling (my day job) I studied under Sam, and as we formed a friendship she asked if I wanted to be part of her dream to open her own salon one day. That was in early 2006. I waited, not-so-patiently, and in November of 2009, the doors to Artistic Hair Gallery opened in the heart of beautiful downtown Brockville Ontario, where I've had my artwork displayed, and have had my jewelry for sale in the physical world since (which is why you might see items disappear from my Etsy shop from time to time).

In late 2011, my friend Catrienna suggested I go online. She's one of the most net-savvy people I know. She actually did most of the setting up for me. I must have made her read at least 30 listings before publishing them, just in case I was doing it wrong. She's right up there with mom in the aleathabean fandom.

These days, my work has been growing and changing and becoming better everyday. I can't believe how much I've grown in the past, and I can't wait to see what's to come in the future. I am grateful, every day, that I get to exercise my creativity, and Etsy has been a wonderful avenue to do just that.
