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.


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.
