As a kid really, didn’t we make mud cakes and so forth…6 years with jewelry though

Las Vegas, Illinois, and Virginia. Yes! We moved every three years, so I really like change, creating one of a kind pieces 98% of the time carries my interest. Virginia is where I found my connection to nature and am inspired by love for the natural cycles we experience all around us.
