My Bio

My childhood was surrounded by creativity. My Mother was always making some sort of home decor, or decoupaging something, & my Father makes Native American items & wire trees.

I started beading simple jewelry about nine yrs ago when my husband bought me a bunch of supplies for Mother's Day. At first, I was only making jewelry for myself, & for gifts. A few yrs later, my husband convinced me to start selling my wares.

After seven yrs of us trying to get pregnant, & several heartaches later, I became pregnant with our son. My husband got me a belly cast kit so we could make a cast of my big 'ole belly, & the kit included more plaster than was needed. I didn't want to be wasteful & throw it all away, so I started working with it, & my interest in plaster was born.

About 2 yrs later, I had decided polymer clay was fantastic, & I set out to play & learn the wonders of clay. Shortly after that, a love for wire sprouted, & I'm currently learning to work with it.

Everything I make is a one of a kind item. I believe in being unique, & like for my products to reflect the individuals using them. All items are made in a smoke free environment, & most are made by recycling or giving things a new purpose.

I've known my husband's family for 23 yrs, & we've been married for 10 yrs. Our son is three, & his cat Nimh is 8 months. His wish for a gecko, however, remains immortal.
