I enjoy beautiful things and love collecting beads and rocks. I started making my own jewelry just for fun. I started out making my own polymer clay earrings in the 90s and my mother-in-law helped me by placing my earrings on consignment at one of the country stores in Alburgh and sold them for me when she did her craft shows. Watching her love of sewing and crafts encouraged me to try making my own jewelry as well. I would like to think that she would be proud to know that I am following in her footsteps.
I enjoy painting, creating wire tree sculptures and my current fascination is incorporating my copper wire trees, which are either handpainted with nail polish or adorned with beautiful semi precious gemstones on Himalayan Salt lamps, night lights or candle holders.
I am active in most of the local art and craft shows and enjoy meeting and connecting with potential customers and networking with other local artisans.
What started out as just a simple past time has now turned into a part time business for me, a business that I truly enjoy. I'm passionate about my art and it makes my heart skip knowing that someone is out there wearing one of my creations or one of my happy trees is sitting on someone's mantle or desk.
