I was born & raised in beautiful southern California. I was blessed with having and extremely talented & crafty mom. My father was an equally talented Civil Engineer. I have a degree in Accounting, Paralegal Studies, & Pharmacy Technician. (I couldn't decide what I wanted to be when I grew up!!) But seriously, I love learning and evolving.
Most of my career was spent being "serious." Now is the fun part of my life! I love taking a raw material, like wire, and turning it into a gorgeous new creation. I also love to bead, macrame, and various forms of needlepoint. What inspires you? Nature inspires me. I love the simplicity and the complexity of nature. People also inspire me. I love to see their faces when I explain how my chainmaille is created & they always have wonderful suggestions for new creations! And of course my family always inspires and supports me.
