I have been in education all my life and my interest in learning about jewelry started with taking a fused glass class. I quickly developed a love of using my hands to make jewelry. I started making jewelry to wear or to give to friends as gifts. People started commenting and asking me to make jewelry for them. I am constantly trying to learn more and include knowledge from the history of jewelry to present fashion style. I read constantly, take classes, and experiment with different mediums to make my jewelry one of a kind. I gather my stones from all over the world and every piece is unique. The best part of this journey is I continue to aspire to learn and grow and of course be happy.
