I'm a collector and a creator; I love history and old things.  

Color: sometimes bright, sometimes softly worn.

I'm a sucker for a timeworn patina.

Asymmetry, almost always.

Moderation in all things, including moderation.

A bit of sparkle never hurt anybody.

Details and allusions, sometimes hidden.

Literature and myth.

Jazz.

Improvisation and spontaneity.

Charm and humor.

Some people don't like cute things. What's wrong with them?

I love convertibles.

I have a BA in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin; I've been making glass beads and working in Precious Metal Clay since 1999.  I use my own work, components made by other artists and things I find in my travels and beady wanderings.
