Random Facts About You?

My favorite words are monkey, biscuit, and cattywampus.
I’d love to live in a pimped-out treehouse.
Thunderstorms put me to sleep in no time flat.
I go see live performances of the “Phantom of the Opera” every single chance I get.

What got you started crafting?

Ever since I can remember, I’ve had an overactive brain that got bored easily. I didn’t have any brothers or sisters to pester, so I was always doing puzzles or building things with Legos or crafting. I’m a teensy (or maybe more than teensy) ADD, and I would learn something long enough to see that I could do it, then I moved on–cross stitch, crocheting, rug latch, sewing, origami, stamping… When I started playing with metal, I knew it was love when I stuck with it longer than 5 minutes.

What is your source of inspiration?

I get inspiration from everywhere–nature, comic books, music, architecture… My best epiphanies have come while in the shower or during those few minutes lying in bed *right* before falling asleep.

What have you made recently?

Recently, I finished a brooch called “Seize the Daisy!” It was the first large brooch I attempted and was completely handcrafted–I even rolled the silver sheet. It took FOR-EVER, but I wanted to challenge myself and I was excited after every step to see it look more like something recognizable.

Where do you sell your crafts presently?

I do big art craft fairs every once in a while, but mostly I do home jewelry parties and have my online shop. I like the smaller format much better to be able to get to know people and what they’d really like. Working with someone to create a special custom piece that they’ll treasure and hand down–that’s *the ultimate* experience.

On my Facebook page I’ll post promo deals when I get a wild hair.

Why are handmade crafts important to you?

I want to surround myself with things that have the personality of their makers, and I don’t want typical stuff everyone else has.
