I've lived in Florida all my life, ride motorcycles, and make art... oh yeah and have a full time professional career. Lately, I'm back to making jewelry... go figure, it always happens... me coming back to jewelry. I bead (simple stringing and wire working), repurpose vintage pieces, and I've been experimenting with wire and hammers (what a way to relieve the frustrations of a long day!). I also like to embellish household items with beads and other art forms. I call them "Artful Wares" in my Etsy shop, Pieces of D. I also write poetry and prose, which was my first love, even as early as grade school. That's pretty much me in a nutshell!
