About Me

I've done all kinds of crafts all my life, mostly by necessity (mending, fixing, decorating, amusing children, and, most importantly, just to make myself sit down for a while!).  When I retired, a friend took me to a watercolor painting class, and I found I loved it.   Then another friend asked me to mend broken jewelry.  When she saw the jewelry I had made for myself, she wanted me to make earrings to match this outfit, that necklace.... and I had a new hobby. 

 Most of the earrings I make are very lightweight, using hypo-allergenic nickle free posts, and are just for fun. My most popular feature red and green chile peppers and denim earrings-- How New Mexico can you get?   

Lately I've been experimenting with photographs, viewing the textures of the Southwest in a new light.
