What got you started crafting?
My parents, they are both highly creative!
What is your source of inspiration?
I am inspired by the vintage and antique materials that I collect. The more worn the better! I love pieces that feel like they have a real history (my favorite finds are old lockets with the photos still in them!). Currently heavily inspired by the Jazz Age!
What have you made recently?
I love to layer necklaces, the more the better! Lately I am making long necklaces with chain tassels that feature really sparkly beads.
