My love of beautiful things began at an early age, which led me to a college degree in Fashion Management. This career path led me to be a retail Buyer and Manager of 16 stores. During that same time, I taught Fashion Management classes at the Community College. My Art Show experience began with hand-built ceramics. My career transitioned to the Insurance industry where I had a 34-year career, eventually owning my own agency. Now that I am retired, my love of jewelry has been rekindled in creating unique, one-of-a-kind pieces from found objects and vintage items.
