I was a Chemical Engineering major at UC Berkeley.
I once worked as a hair model.
I love playing golf.
I am a huge Star Trek fan.
What got you started crafting?
I've always loved arts and crafts. Jewelry was a fun way to make handmade gifts for friends and to make myself pieces that I couldn't afford to buy in the store.
What is your source of inspiration?
Nature, fashion and the materials I work with.
What have you made recently?
I love my "Fly Free" Necklace. It's a combination of 3 charms, a bird, a bird cage, and a key charm. It's put together as if the bird has escaped from the cage, and it can symbolize so many things to different people. I hope it inspires people to go for their dreams.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I sell my handmade jewelry mostly through my website. I also do a farmer's market in the summer in Burlingame, CA. I used to do more craft shows, but that is tough work!
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
There's something very soothing about the process of making something by hand. I love the rhythm and the creativity I get to have over this little world I create.
