Meet the Designer-Artist

I'm a clerical worker who retired a few years ago. I did not have many hobbies and never thought about making jewelry as I was not an artistic person.

I saw a pair of earrings at $110 which I thought I could not afford and wondered if I could make them. I went to a local bead store and talked to the sales people and bought some materials and went home and actually made a similar pair. I got many compliments especially when I said that I had made them myself.

My friends started to ask me to make some things for them and I have never looked back. It is now my passion.

This necklace ''Sparkle of the Sea'' is the culmination of all my talents and represents me as I see myself.
