My love of jewelry developed when at the age of six. I say this because I preferred digging for rocks on the playground instead of setting sail on the swing set.
My love of rocks morphed when I opened a bead store, and then another, called The Bead Monkey. I did that for over two decades. Now you can find my jewelry at art fairs, online, and on me!
When I’m not making something sparkly, I’m drinking a latte, coaching little league soccer or basketball, cooking, reading a novel, or napping.
I live in the Minneapolis burbs with my two kids (boy age 6 and girl age 11) and one squirrely dog named Olive.
