I love the Holidays, but I am not a big fan of Holiday shopping, especially at big outlet stores...and especially on Black Friday. You will find me in the studio, baking Christmas Cookies or Decorating for the season. The last place you will find me is in shopping mall or a store fighting others for parking spaces, gifts and great bargains. That for me, is not the way to bring in the season. I am trying my darnest this year to buy Handmade for my family and friends. A great place to start is Etsy.
Which brings me to the Crab set I created on Friday.....I know most people don't come home from shopping on Black Friday with a "warm & fuzzy"....I figures "crabby" was the word of the day...hence this beautiful Boro Glass Crab designed by my friend Jill. I love the yummy warm colors Jill combined....another plus on the cold, blustery day it was put together. It's a beautiful set...don'tcha think...?

I grew up in Wisconsin and vowed to move closer to the ocean when I graduated from College. I wanted to be a Marine Biologist. I spent a summer in Biloxi, MS taking classes before I graduated and decided to move back.
I've always enjoyed working with my hands. I've enjoyed needle work, mosaics, photography and ceramics. I started making jewelry 6 years ago and have never looked back. I love creating something beautiful that reflects a bit of myself that the wearer can relate to. My pieces are inspired by a day at the beach, the wind and salt grazing your face, the sun on your shoulders, the sand between your toes and the pina colada in your hand.
My jewelry shows my love and appreciation of the ocean. It's funky and fun with beach attitude.
