I am a jewelry designer and artisan and crafter in many different media. I love color (especially green!) and texture; these are usually the starting point of any design. I have a degree in Geology, have driven tour buses, sold cosmetics, been a salesperson, worked in a lab, in an office, and in the financial industry. I am owned by two adorable long-haired dachshunds and kept by my wonderful hubby (he cooks!).
