I’ve been married to my college sweetheart going on 16 years now. I also am an aunt to two sweet nieces and two cute nephews. I grew up in Washington and I was involved with horses while growing up. I have been designing jewelry for 4-5 years now but became a self employed jewelry designer last fall (took the plunge and got my business license). I design mostly lampwork glass jewelry and mix in gemstones, pearls, crystal, and sterling silver with the lampwork beads. I also do some all gemstone designs depending on what stones I see that inspire me. Some of my favorite stones are Turquoise, Larimar, Amethyst, Labradorite, Smoky Quartz, Brioche Agate, Imperial Jasper, Tiger Iron and few others.
