What inspires you as a designer-artist? Gemstones--glass beads--Fire Mountain Gems' catalogs
What medium do you work with mostly? Beautiful natural gemstones like jasper--agates--crystals--glass pearls--interesting items I spot while at yard sales and flea markets even broken items that inspire me to stretch their use by turning them into a jewelry item to prolong their life.
Why did you become enchanted with this style of jewelry-making? I became interested in the styles I make by flowers in my flower garden--colors in natural plants I see in fields--beads I see in my numerous Fire Mountain catalogs and jewelry pieces I see being worn by women on television and in real life.
Where and How do you sell your jewelry? I sell my jewelry on eBay under rosehilljewelry, on my own online store, at craft shows and at my home several days a week.
What is the name of the piece you submitted with your success story? 5 Strand Bead and Hammering Ring Necklace
What inspired this design? The colors of riverstone beads I saw online.
How did it come together? It started out as only one color (turquoise riverstone beads) and then grew when I saw another color tube bead in the same material then decided to use some hammered silver-plated steel rings chained together.
