Thank you for taking a moment to visit my "About" Page. I hope it will give you a little insight into the journey that has brought me to this point in my life.
My passion has always been creativity – all my life I have been a self-employed entrepreneur involved in the arts. It all started with Sesame Street – one of my sons loved Oscar and the other’s favorite was Ernie. The characters weren’t available to buy at that time so I created them. The local toy store asked if they were for sale and my first business was born. It eventually grew into a cottage industry business specializing in seasonal décor with 14 employees. I created all the designs, eventually started designing lines for manufacturers and ultimately opened a store – which I enjoyed very much.
As time passed, I felt a need for more hands on creativity and fell in love with lampworking – the art of making glass beads. It was almost magical to take a rod of glass and turn it into a tiny work of art. Because I created my own beads, I have been able to design unique, one of a kind jewelry. This, eventually took me to Hawaii and gave me the opportunity to experience life in “Paradise” for seven years, meet people from all over the world who purchased my jewelry designs, and find my life partner in love and adventure.
My passion for jewelry design never wavered but another journey also started – to write and create books. In my life, it has been important to help people – I seem to have been the one that people call when they are having a problem. Those experiences have inspired me to create a self-discovery journal, How Are You Feeling Today, the first in a series of “Feel Good” books. I want to help as many people as I can to find peace and contentment. in their lives. I envision this website as a base where my jewelry and my books all come together along with inspirations to hopefully create a bit of happines for each of you.
