My Story

I'm a simple girl from a small town in Ohio living in a beautiful coastal town in Florida. I'm married to my very supportive high school sweetheart and we have a beautiful cat, Hula. I studied interior design in college and after several career reincarnations I am now here, living the unexpected life of jewelry designer and absolutely LOVING it!!! This blog chronicals my journey through this wild and exhilarating and sometimes exasperating world of jewelry making from idea to fruition!

Update: Here we are 6 years later and I'm very happy to report that things are going well! I have a thriving shop on Etsy, my own website, I show occasionally at local art/craft shows, and my work is now available at Old Florida Gallery and Outdoor Center in Englewood FL! So follow along... it's getting very interesting!

This pretty much says it all! Some design ideas I get I have a pretty good idea that they'll be great and those are usually the first ideas that pop into my head. Most are at very inopportune times like while I'm trying to center and calm myself with a walk on the beach, just falling asleep, or as random as grocery shopping. The ideas I get while I'm creating the first deisgn are the ones that usually apply to the above. Some are a swing and a miss and back to the drawing board while others are a swing and it's out of the park ;)
