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!
My 19 year old son had the idea to make a tree piece yesterday. After I drew the tree he cut it out with a jewelers saw and punched all the little tree leaves by hand and the grass at the bottom. He then drilled holes in the two pieces. He gave me the cutout and I decided it was so cute that I wanted to make another piece with it. I decided to solder it onto a piece of copper and then put a patina on it. I then had him cut out some vintage sterling tubing I took off an old necklace. I wired wrapped the tubing with sterling for the top of both pieces. It was really fun collaborating on a project together. The only problem is I love these so much it will be hard to part with them. This week is going to be busy as I will be going to Park City on Wed at the Canyons for the market from 12-6, and then the Ogden market opens on Sat from 8-3. I will be at both places, so you can come and see our the jewelry.
