I love the process of creating something that to me is beautiful. I liken it to, not just walking through the garden center but actually working the soil, planting the bulbs, feeding them and patiently waiting for them to grow. I love to see them bloom, enjoy their beauty and then cut them back in the fall to do it all again. I think that is one of the reasons I was drawn to ceramics. To start with a simple shapeless piece of clay and after many steps and processes end up with a beautiful shiny wearable treasure, to me, is such a rewarding experience. I LOVE IT!
With all of it's possibilities in shape and texture and color it keeps my creative little monster happy and well fed. I have also worked selling charcoal portraits, mosaics, and handpainted furniture to mention a few. My home is my largest canvas and drinks in any creative juices not spent on my jewelry. You'll find me most often in t-shirt and jeans, a few pieces of my jewelry on, happily working, cooking for one of my 4 kids, walking a dog or two, catching up with my husband, but almost never sitting down!
Thanks so much for your interest in me and my jewelry designs!
Peace and Blessing to you!
