About the Artist
Thank you for your
interest in my artwork. For now, this site will be
a place to showcase my jewelry, stained glass, and
mosaic tiling designs. I hope to expand on my craft
tutorial pages and continue to develop interesting
I started making jewelry for gifts and
for myself in the early 1990s. Eventually, people
became familiar with my work, and started requesting
custom pieces and ordering jewelry for gifts. Since
I never seemed to have business cards at the ready
when asked, I decided to create a Web site where people
could come and browse around at their leisure, and
contact me with requests or suggestions.
I have a full-time writing career, and
I create beautiful jewelry and mosaics more out of
passion than for profit. Before I graduated from college,
I worked in a number of retail stores, so I know that
value of quality merchandise and excellent customer
service. I pride myself on my unique artwork and guarantee
that each piece is handcrafted by me and that I will
process all orders in a timely manner.
Previously, my Web work
has been focused on the classic TV show Bewitched,
but I have many other interests that I will explore
on this site.
When I'm not working on jewelry or the
Web, I enjoy spending time with my "furbabies."
Chloe is a Sheltie and Cubbie is an Aussie. We live
in the Chicago area, and enjoy long walks,watching
classic television, playing fetch, and reading.
This is my favorite picture of Chloe
and me. It reminds me of this charming Mary Englebreit
illustration of her son (Will) and their dog (Rosie).
