Who Am I and Why Am I Here?

No, this post is not going to delve into the deep imponderables of the universe. I just want to tell you a little bit about myself.

I live in Rochester, NY with my husband Ernie. He's a self-employed graphic designer and we've been blissfully married for nearly ten years.

My first experience with making jewelry was a class project in the fourth grade. From humble beginnings with big plastic beads and fishing line to my current works with gemstones and wire- I've certainly learned a lot over the years! And I intend to continue learning and developing my craft.

When I'm not designing jewelry I'm very busy juggling the other aspects of my life- over 15 hours a week of volunteer work plus two part time jobs. (I work mornings in a busy cafe and evenings at a small Italian restaurant.) All of this is enough to make my head spin at times, but I'm slowly trying to find ways to simplify my life.

Some of my other interests include gourmet cooking, writing, watching football, and spending time with my two adorable nephews- ages 1 and 3.

Don't miss my next post: it will contain some Spring fashion tips!
