Enjoying life as a designer, collector, grandma and shop owner, in Bellingham

Grew up in Seattle. For 3 months a year my mother led tours first to Europe and then around the world, bringing guests and amazing samples of the world's art and artistry home to share. My parent gifted me a year in Paris followed by a ticket good for a year enabling me to visit 27 countries before beginning school at the U of W and later Antioch. Although I had no money or space to collect any of the wonderful hand-made treasures I saw on my travels, I certainly acquired the lust for them which I was able to quench later in life thanks to my generous and successful husband, Terry. I surround myself with international treasures and the jewelry I make in my shop, Oasis Bead Lounge in Bellingham and most of all, enjoy meeting the people who wander in.

Orders will be shipped by the least expensive method with USPS unless the customer requests at the time of ordering, and is willing to pay the costs of other shipping options, .

You must request insurance, tracking or other shipping options with your order. I take full responsibility for shipping the order but I do not take responsibility for delivery. The post office in my area is closed on Saturdays and Sundays and my shop is closed on Mondays. Orders received after Friday 5 pm will be shipped on the following Tuesday morning for this reason.
