Hello! I'm so happy you're here!
As you might have already guessed, my life revolves primarily around two things: beads and books. Every day I'm writing, editing, reading, and/or designing jewelry. Occasionally I even remember to eat lunch.
If you want to know more about making your own jewelry, check out my jewelry how-to book titled Unexpected Findings: 50+ Clever Jewelry Designs Using Everyday Components. (If you're not a maker, no worries! I sell my handmade work on Etsy and selected shops.) In addition to my jewelry work, I also write articles, essays, and the (very) occasional piece of fiction on all sorts of topics including coffee, bad haircuts, and grocery store checkout lines.
