It all started with a "treasure necklace"....

I started my shops after being inspired by a South American treasure necklace which used small charms attached to a ropy base and tied at the neck with a simple knot or bow.

My first customer was a wonderful store in Chatham, Massachusetts whose two buyers loved my originality.

Since then, my work has been carried by a number of different shops on Cape Cod and Maine and can be seen seasonally at fine and juried arts and crafts shows in Maine.
