I have been working with glass beads for 10 years. I got into wire wrapping just last year, and am loving it. I also make some hemp jewelry.

I make one of a kind pieces of jewelry. There may be similar pieces, but there will never be two that are exactly alike.

I also enjoy wood, paper, and leather crafts, but I'm just admiring everyone else's work in those mediums for now. :)

The Interview:

~ Besides creating, what other hobbies do you have?

I love to take walks and enjoy the area I live in. I've moved around a lot, so it's a great way to get acquainted with everything close by. I am also a photographer, so I love to take pictures of the nature around me. I've discovered that there are many surprising things hidden in Salt Lake City. I write music...and that helps me to unwind.

~ Where does your inspiration come from?

I use my jewelry making as a form of meditation. I also study the techniques of many different artists. I look at different color combinations and try to understand why they work (or don't work).

~ Where would you like to be in 10 years?

I hope I'll have my own home with a jewelry studio. I'd love to be working with more precious stones and metals by then.
