Get to Know

I have been making handcrafted wire jewelry since 1984. For the first two years it was a beloved hobby, then I went "professional" in 1986. Nearly every weekend for six years I was displaying and selling my work at art and craft shows around Florida and across the United States. Then in 1992 I took a deep breath and opened a little retail shop in historic Cocoa Village, Florida. I am now in my shop six days a week, and my craft-show-travelling days are over, since I am now married and have a twelve-year-old son. My jewelry is made of the finest quality materials available. I hand-select each stone, and using small jewelry tools, my hands, and my sometimes-overactive imagination, I lovingly sculpt each one into a piece of unique wearable art. After all these years, I still can't wait to get to it every day! I don't get up and go to work in the morning--I get up and go play!
