Tell us about what you sell:

Because I love the old, the battle scarred, the decrepit, I make and sell jewelry that is very textural and imperfect. At the same time, my work is made with fine materials adding to the juxtaposition of old and new.

What is your favorite thing about creating?

The feeling of release. I mean that in two ways. One is being forced to release my control and let the object become what it will. The other is the feeling of a release of an almost physical pressure once that object exists in the world. Without creating, that pressure builds until it is unbearable!

Where do you find your inspiration?

An old rusty truck driving down the road. Anything I’m attracted to is inspirational. But, people inspire me most, I suppose. I grew up surrounded by women with fabulous style and I think that shaped what I find beautiful today.

Do you have any advice for other sellers?
I guess my advice would be to offer great customer service. After all, if it weren’t for the customers, this would just be a really expensive hobby, right?

Allow me to apologize for this uber-late warning. You have until tomorrow to purchase your favorite hair accessory from my web site or Etsy shop, as I will be deactivating them all for a craft fair on Saturday.

There’s a good chance many of them won’t be coming back.

I’ll also be taking most of my rings and post earrings with me.

There. Now you can’t say you weren’t warned.

Local Peeps: Wanna stop buy and take a peak at the new hair clips, headbands, and rings I haven’t even listed in my online shop yet? The show is on Saturday, June 15th, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 2720 E. Bruce, Spokane Wa 99217. There will even be some free food.
