I am a mother of three, grandmother of one, wife of 35 years, nurse of 36 years and now a jewelry designer and crafter.
Since I was a youngster I have had jewelry designs in my head. Having grown up in Colorado I am heavily influenced by the colors and textures in the natural settings of our "Colorful Colorado".
I have taught myself the fundamentals of jewelry creation, stringing and off loom bead weaving. I love doing this and it absorbs my attention most of the time.
I am always seeking knowledge about the art and craft and feedback about my designs so feel free to critique and share.
