I live for working with resin, doing bead embroidery and dabbling in any number of other jewelry-making techniques.

I've been making jewelry for a decade. I started out making Scrabble tile pendants and from there my interest in all kinds of jewelry just bloomed. Some of the questions that guide my work include: Can I cover this with resin? Will this make a good focal element for a bead embroidery necklace? Can I make an interested focal point? What is the right amount of glitter? What will this medium do? Does anyone love green, orange and brown as much as I do?

I also love making journals from upcycled materials or with original artwork. Finally, over the last year, I've rekindled my love of embroidery and found a new love for weaving.

A spirit of play and exploration is also evident in what I do? I like making a variety of pieces (stringing, bead weaving, creating micro-mosaics, wire wrapping, book binding and more) because it fires my imagination to try new techniques and work with new materials.

Most of all, I love working with people to create items that are personal and have deeper meaning. I've used photos, horse hair and special beads/stones to create special items.
