Welcome - I'm so glad you are here! I've been creating unique jewelry, mosaics, fused glass, and paintings for over 12 years.  I've sold thousands of pieces - and can't wait to show you what I offer.

Originally from NY and now in gorgeous Orange County, CA, I spent many years in tech sales - then put that on hold while I raised my two children. Doing art was my way of reclaiming a smidgeon of "me" time. It's become a crucial (and large) part of my life. 

Creating has intrinsic value, but it goes far beyond that. When a customer sends me a video of her mother crying with joy at seeing the photo pendant she received for Mother's Day, or when someone tells me they wear a particular piece every day, it makes me feel proud and wonderful to have this sort of positive impact on people. 

Most of my designs are one-of-a-kind. Part of the fun is playing with all the different materials and applying standard techniques in a unique way. You will find pieces made from fused glass, epoxy clay, resin, polymer clay, and lots and lots of charms and other mixed media doodads such as beads, watch gears, wires, screws, etc. If you visit my studio you will see my "glitter wall", 3 kilns, and 8 shelving units stuffed to the gills with supplies.

Select from my large inventory or place a custom order. And if you want to have a great deal of fun and put your own creativity to work - attend one of my workshops or events!
