When I make jewelry I sometimes start with a story I want to tell, and other times the beads & wire just make themselves into something I love and the story comes later! I delight in fanciful stories from literature, theater, music and I am fascinated by the process of trying to convey the enchantment from one genre (ie books or music) to another (jewelry).
I am a Daughter of the South Wind (aka native Kansan;) and spent much of my childhood wishing myself to far away places- real and imagined. My heroes have always been fanciful characters from books like Lord of the Rings, Peter Pan, and The Chronicles of Narnia.
My husband Ian hails from Edinburgh, Scotland and has recently joined me in my artistic ventures- he is the official Circlet Wizard at Thyme2dream.
