I am a mom, nurse, dog owner, and jewelry designer. I love to vacation in the mountains where there is no cell phone access., I love sandy beaches and the ocean air. One of my favorites places is Sawtooth National Forest near Sun Valley Idaho. It is never crowded and full of really fun hikes, lakes, and has lots of ghost towns to explore. I love to make jewelry and design new pieces out of found objects. I love dogs and have a German Wirehair, that was adopted-He came with the name Hank. I only have one son at home and both daugters will be married soon. I am married to a great guy who loves to hunt and fish, Most of all he love me!
I had a lot of fun creating these pieces for my new line. I will be selling these at the artists market this summer in Ogden, Utah. The market is called: The Historic 25th Street Market. I love working with antiques and finding new ways to incorporate found items into jewelry. I have some new antique soldered key pieces coming out in the June 2010 issue of Belle Armoire Magazine. I hope to have some ready to sell this summer. Lots of people have hobbies but this is not my hobby it is my passion. Okay, this may sound a little strange or even crazy but I make jewelry because this is what I live to do. I find inspiration in everything around me and am always looking for the next thing to use in my jewelry. I have a whole notebook full of new ideas. I probably will never have enough time to create all these things, but won't give up trying. It is like an obsession. I hope you enjoy these and please feel free to leave a comment.
