Welcome to my little virtual market place! Everything you see on my website, etsy shop (or anywhere I sell my designs) have all been handcrafted by me. I am a lover of all things shiny and pretty, mixing old with new, using lot's of color, various types of metals and trinkets, gemstones and even my own handmade lampwork glass beads.
I'm a mom, artist, designer, knitter, painter, writer and bookworm who loves to sew, decorate, work on home improvement projects, play board games, take lot's of pictures, scrapbook, shop, spend time with family and friends and blog about what I'm working on or whatever is on my mind.
I live and create out of my home studio in Michigan.
I play with fire and pretty baubles and beads for a living, I think that's pretty darn cool!
I started creating jewelry from a very young age but it wasn't until my early 20's that decided to make a career of it and take it on full time. I started out with my Bridal Collection
and seeking out unique gemstones to create designs for my
fashion jewelry collection. Soon my obsession with lampwork glass beads began.
I was buying other artists glass beads and using them in my jewelry designs but I quickly found
myself on a mission to learn everything there was to know about making glass beads. With the use of the internet and books, I bought everything I needed to get started and
have never looked back. I am self taught in all my artful and crafty adventures and am constantly working to improve my skills and learn new techniques.
My goal is to create unique, fun, one of a kind pieces using a wide variety of findings and mediums. Each and ever day I feel completely blessed to be able to create and share my art and still be able to stay home and be the best mom I can be to my son. I have to thank each and every one of my customers, friends and family for their constant support and allowing me to do what I love.
