I am a maker.
I’m happiest in my studio, playing with my tools, digging through a box of stones, and listening to favorite bluegrass band. “Slow craft,” “small batch,” “artisan-made” may be over-used terms, but they’re accurate descriptors of what I do. I start with simple materials: a sheet of metal, some wire, a pair of dividers and a jeweler’s saw, and begin to tinker, allowing one idea to lead to the next. Success is making something that is new and interesting, a compelling design that wears well. The best part, of course, is creating something that makes a woman feel joyful and beautiful.
