How I went from poor student to good teacher.

I was not happy in a normal school setting. Long before all those learning labels came to be I just knew I felt trapped in a standard classroom. And I resented my creativity. Now I feel it is the best gift I have been given. In teaching I am careful to be a cheerleader for the more creatively timid while staying out of the way of those who take the ball and run!
After more than forty years of making and selling I have now closed my studio to the public (except by appointment) to make space to experiment and play in new directions. This time around I am able to be less self judgmental and more trusting of the process. I am both grateful and excited to have this opportunity. Etsy gives me the platform to share the results world wide.

    I have crocheted and knitted since my teens and started jewelry making right after leaving my freshman year of college. Putting all my favorite things together, I now make clasps and closures for knitters, crocheters and weavers and teach workshops for those who like to make their own. I come from the perspective of keeping the workshops simple in tool requirements. The student is also free to experiment and make a shawl pin, tea stirrer, ornament, etc.
