It is supplying our children with an appreciation and respect for the environment... Read more

About 2 years ago I got into a habit of repurposing old pieces of wood trim from homes and buildings. Well, I started making these funny little picture frames which not only provided me with a creative outlet, but also gave me a way to practice recycling in its true sense. Each one of those picture frames is handmade, and I go with the flow when it comes to design, etc. The frames are made from bits and pieces... Read more
I am very busy right now creating my new line of vintage inspired jewelry from repurposed or recycled jewelry peaces, like vintage brooches. Trying hard to be green. Every little effort makes a difference. Right?

I feel like it just happened naturally. Creating is what I do. I spend a lot of time in the studio playing. I started one day making jewelry and I haven’t stopped since.
