I love Fall most of all. The trees and flowers giving us one last amazing show of natures beauty and signaling it's time to rest now. The only way I think of Winter is all of nature is resting up for the next year of beauty.

I love spending time with my babies (dogs) Dallas (blue healer mix) and Trixie (yorkie). They are so funny and constantly wanting my attention.

I love taking my time to make jewelry pieces.

Skills and Techniques

My best skill is organization, you simply cannot be productive without it. My mind is not as sharp as it used to be, so my creativity levels are based on my research of other pieces of jewelry. I see a piece I like and then make it mine by changing colors, metals and design. Other artists are my inspiration to get me going!

Get to Know

As far back as I can remember, I have always had a love for jewelry. My mother made these crocheted rope necklaces from seed beads and they were beautiful. Many were sold by The Little Sisters of The poor yearly. I started out on eBay, selling what I could and made a nice bit of money. This was part-time because I worked a full-time job. I went full-time on eBay for about 7 years and then quit because the fees were too high.

I retired in 2016 and decided to make a go selling my handmade jewelry again. So here I am on Artfire and sincerely hoping you enjoy my pieces.

I am a blessed grandmother of 3 gorgeous grandchildren. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 33 years.
