Most of my life I've wanted to create. I began this journey as a writer, working as such for many years in features and advertising. During that time, I was also interested in visual arts that spanned a wide spectrum from drawing and painting to photography to, well, just about anywhere my imagination would take me.
I introduced myself to jewelry design when I wanted a unique eyeglass chain. It escalated from there!
I've been making and selling jewelry part time for several years at shows, online and from galleries. I will always think of myself as a writer first, a blog lets me combined both worlds.
Particulars? Well, earned a bachelor's degree in written communications and linguistics.
I'm happily married and enjoy traveling where- and whenever I can, especially to the UK. It inspires me.
I've been a Type 1 diabetic for 43 years and have pledged to donate 10% of any profits I make from my Artfire Studio to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. So, visit my studio. It's growing all the time to include other items besides jewelry. I'm excited about giving this endeavor a go!
