In 2005 my partner and I moved to Arizona which is where my jewelry design started. I have always loved creating, from doing stained glass artwork to painting glassware and furniture.
A few years back I was introduced to jewelry design, specifically working with beads, sterling silver and other metal findings. I immediately fell in love with working with all the beautiful beads, stones, sterling findings. I can get lost for hours at a time working and designing the pieces.
I have been selling my work at local art fairs, including at the Farmer's Market on Thursdays in Fountain Hills. During one of the markets I met a woman named Karen who ended up purchasing a home from me here in Fountain Hills (I have also been a realtor for 28 years). Karen is also involved in jewelry design, specifically crocheting with wire. She asked if I would like to learn how to do this different type of jewelry design and this is where it all started.
I am hooked (no pun intended!). Of all the different types of jewelry that I have designed, crocheting has become a true passion for me above all!
I will be glad to do any special orders or special pieces for a wedding party. Thank you for looking!
