Artist Bio: When I was a little girl my babysitter, Mrs. O’Neal, gave me a small jewelry box filled with treasures, from miniature elephants to itty bitty photo books of exotic places. This began a love of small things which I still carry with me today. From little clowns to miniature slot machines, I enjoy bringing the fun and wonder from elements of my childhood into my jewelry work, and then being able to share this with others who get to wear my jewelry. I have been lucky to be able to follow this passion of creating things that make me and others happy for over 30 years, and I feel like I hit the jackpot!
