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 love dogs and this little one is no exception. I had a black Chihuahua when I was a kid so when a saw Buster I was drawn to him. He is so friendly and loves people. I met him at the SLC artist market last week and he was sporting his own handmade jewelry. I thought this was a neat idea. His owner decided that Buster needed to have a name necklace and ordered a custom one from me. I brought it to the market yesterday and had so much fun measuring his neck and fitting him for his own necklace. Everyone at the booth was admiring little Buster in his new necklace. His owner says he only weights 4.5 pounds. I never thought that I would ever design an order for doggie jewelry but this was so much fun that I want to create doggie designs. His owner snapped this cute photo of Buster all decked out in his new design and sent it to me. I have all kinds of ideas and am looking forward to creating more designs for dogs.
