I’ve been making jewelery most of my life. I love metals, raw or processed, it matters not. In 1987 I took my passion further, attending metal smithing courses at the Southwestern Cultural Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. At the time, I was studying the art of Astrology, so I began to independently study the stones representation via the Astrological signs and their various healing properties. I’ve been a professional astrologer since 1989 and love to marry this knowledge as well as the healing properties, within many of my pieces.

What got you started crafting?
What is your source of inspiration?
The passion I have for the Metal, and the fact that I couldn't do it for so long - gives it so much MORE meaning now. I truly feel blessed.
What have you made recently?
I made these awesome Twirling Earrings that I can interactive art. I play with my pair for hours on end. Fun in an earring!! :-) Does it get any better?
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I sold pieces for the first time in 1990 until a car accident in Sept 1994. I did not solder again until June of 2008, however, still made items from wire and rock. See my Etsy Profile for more information on my work.
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Because I desire to own only items that were made with caring and love - not in a sweat shop where someone literally holds your life in their hands.
