I am a self-taught full time wire jewelry designer and have been selling my jewelry online since 1999. I make all of my jewelry myself using sterling silver wire and a variety of gemstones, glass, shells, bone, and other materials. Everything I create is with my own hands or tools.
I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design from Austin Peay State University, after attending two years at Florida Atlantic University with a physics major. I was a production artist at Walcutt Art Studio in the mid to late 90’s (a company that painted Miami Subs murals all over Florida). I was part of an amazing group of artists who created a lot of production art. I enjoyed the people I worked with just as much as the work ;)
I plan to set up a feedback page on this site so that users can share their experiences. Until then you can view my feedback in two ways. I’ve been selling jewelry online on Ebay since 1999; read the feedback that other eBay users have left about me here. I have also been selling on Etsy since 2008; read the feedback that other Etsy users have left about me here. Please be assured that orders placed through eBay or Etsy will receive the same attention as those placed through this site.

All Metaphysical Property references are derived from Kristi Huggins, author of the The Handy Little Crystal Reference Guide. This is a must have cross-reference guide for anyone serious about metaphysical properties. She also authored Stepping Stones to Crystal Basics for those who have just discovered their love of gemstones, and are not sure where to start. She is THE lady I go to when I have any questions about crystals or gemstones. We’ve been working together for years and she’s the best, she knows her stuff!
