I am a creative person and lifelong learner. I taught High School Home Economics, which was mostly clothing, textiles, tailoring, and pattern design. I got into quilting in the '80's and had a quilt shop in Door County, WI. I also took semester long courses in drawing, and painting in the 90's. I had a collection of gem stones and took a silversmithing course at College of DuPage in Illinois, William Holland in Georgia, and Brevard Rock and Gem Club. Silversmithing led to working with copper…cold connections. I design jewelry using stones, gems, copper, silver, whatever strikes my fancy.
All of this was a way to enrich my life, creatively, emotionally and socially.
