Personal

I am a fitness instructor and personal trainer from the capital of Canada. Jewelry has always been in my blood since I got my first beading loom at 10 years of age. I work in various mediums and techniques including sterling silver, silver clay, crochet, kumihimo, wire work and stringing and am always looking for something new to try.
