My work is an extension of my interests in femininity, craft, handiwork, and nature. I am a small business owner, jeweler, artist and a Waldorf early childhood educator. I’ve created my own trade, independent of the corporate structures that dominate the society that we live in. It's my personal duty to help support other small businesses, to support other artists, and to encourage others to do the same.
