About

RARE adj. rar-er, rar-est 1. Infrequently ocurring; uncommon. 2. Excellent; extraordinary

I learned to make jewelry while working for a bead store in St. Louis. I had no idea what I was doing, but learned different techniques from other employees and long-time beaders who came in to browse the store.

My education and professional background are in Political Science and Government, but my passion for art and creativity led me to pursue a full-time career in jewelry making. Honestly, I sucked at my "real" job, and rather than take a probation, I took a severance so I could stay home with my daughter and make jewelry. When I discovered I had a gift for working with metal and a torch, it was all downhill from there. One craft show led to another, and here I am!

I like to combine my metal work with Precious Metal Clay, also known as PMC, adding color and whimsy by incorporating colorful enamels, semi precious stones, and lampwork glass beads, a skill I learned at a local glass studio.

I'm blessed to say I'm an artist and a mother. I get up everyday to the people and work I love the best, sometimes a little tired and groggy from late-night feedings or stuffy noses, but blessed even still.
