Where do you live? I live in rural Cave Junction. I was born in Oregon City, had my childhood in Daytona Beach and then moved here when I was in fifth grade.
What inspires you as a designer-artist? The stones I work with is what inspires me. I like to make natural patterns with my work.
What medium do you work with mostly? I work with wire and stones mostly and sometimes crystals.
Why did you become enchanted with this style of jewelry-making? When I was sixteen or seventeen, I was working in customer service at Fire Mountain Gems and Beads. My job was to send out magazines and the free instructions people ask for with the catalog cards. I was looking at them all day and so I thought I should try out what I saw.
