About the Artist

Collections are a reflection of the soul, and I have collected all my life  - from primitive antiques to vintage jewelry. So it would seem natural for me to  collect Swarovski crystals, gemstones, cabochons, and buttons. These collections  are what I draw on to create my bead embroidered jewelry and objects. I love the  look of vintage filigree and the lush sparkle of crystals. These are the  components that make my pieces unique.


I believe we all have creativity within us, we just need the right medium,  inspiration, and positive encouragement to find what we love to do. My every day mantra is  to be humble, love life, and sparkle like Swarovski AB2X!
