I have so many passions that there is no way to list them all... so I'll summarize. :) I love to paint, draw, sing, play guitar and piano, write poetry, cook, shoot photos and I absolutely LOVE to make jewelry!

I create each of my pieces from the ground up. I don't harvest parts from older existing jewelry but rather I use vintage components. I use rhinestones and brass findings from the 1940's through the 1960's. All of these stones came from their original packages, unused and untouched for up to 70 years.

There is always a strange moment before I untie the strings of a box of vintage rhinestones from decades ago. Sometimes there are handwritten notes on the side with dates.. for example one paper package said in feminine script, "New color for the year, 1952"

As I break the seal and open the package, I realize that every one of these neatly arranged little stones nestled in layers of soft tissue were all carefully hand-placed there by someone and then sealed into darkness until that very moment, 60 years later, when I looked at them again.

I know it may sound strange but giving these bits of sparkle new life after such a long slumber brings me a great deal of joy and fulfillment. Even though I do sell my work, I always keep plenty of photos as every creation is hard to part with.

I hope you enjoy what you see here and get a kick out of the color, sparkle, and vintage flavor that my jewelry has to offer!

Sorry I've been away for a bit - things rather went haywire out here my way... My man went blind in one eye (retina detachment) and had surgery and then I had oral surgery. I also started home schooling my 12 year old and so everything is just hectic here. Hopefully I'll get my kiester back to updating and stuff. xoxoxoxo

Oh - and my husband's surgery was without complication, however, we won't know if his eyesight is back completely for a few months. :)
