My Bio

 For those of you who do not know my background I had a beaded jewelry business 20 years ago when the "Bohemian" look was called the "Gypsy" look!

From there I went into a career in fundraising for various non-profits offering services to people with AIDS, Developmentally Disabled, Mentally Ill and Homeleness. All the while still collecting, drooling and, yes, even fondling gems! For the last 10 years I have been working as a Free-Lance PR and Marketing Professional. This has afforded me the ability to return to my first love!

I am currently taking Jewelry Design and Lapidary classes at Venice Adult School (Venice, CA) and taking classes toward my Graduate Gemologist certification from the Gemological Institute of America.

I am an avid learner and writer - please visit my blogs at:
