Hi, I'm Debbie. I have always loved to create. One of my fondest memories as a child is making 'May Day' baskets from old wallpaper, filling them with hand-picked wild flowers and putting them on our neighbors doors. My Mother tried to inspire an imaginative and creative spirit in each of her 3 daughters.

Since my wallpaper days, I have worked with many different mediums including fabric, paint, stencils, wood, gemstones-you get the idea-a little bit of everything. Several years ago I started playing around with metal wire and fell in love! I now work with my hands and my heart. I am very happy when I have a hammer in one hand, some metal stamps and/or some form of silver in the other.

My husband Roger, who works full time, has recently been joining me in the shop a couple of days a week. He has an amazing creative side and he adds a wonderful new dimension to our work. We are making plans to add some awesome new items to our line and are very excited to share them with you soon.
