"When I discovered the art of making jewelry I also discovered something about myself; I have a real passion for creating and designing. Working in my home studio gives me the sensation of truly fulfilling my calling. My palette of beads includes many colors and varieties of glass, freshwater pearls in every shape, color, and size, hand designed beads, and a wide array of semi precious stones."
