I first became interested in making jewelry when I purchased a beautiful furnace/cane glass necklace at an estate sale. We attend estate sales and auctions regularly to buy inventory for our Ebay antiques & collectibles business. The furnace glass beads fascinated me, and I still hope to one day create my own beads. I decided right then that I wanted to make jewelry!
I love to play with color and textures. My pieces are unique and some are one of a kind. I use primarily new, but some vintage beads and findings in my pieces. Unless otherwise noted, all of my pieces have Sterling Silver or Gold Filled clasps and findings.
In addition to my jewelry designing, I also am owner and webmaster for American History Fun Facts - a site devoted to fun facts and interesting American history trivia. I built this site using a powerful tool/program called SBI. You can read more about my adventures with building a successful website by visiting my Site Build It journal.
As you might have noticed by my website design, I love cats! You can view photos of my three at the bottom of this page. Aren't they adorable?
