We are all motivated by many different things. For me?  I love to make something beautiful out of nothing.  In all aspects of my life, I am a creator by nature.  My mother wore a unique bracelet that captivated me for years. A few years later in a dream, I saw how to create it. Of course it took months of experimentation before my first bracelet was birthed. They are formed from a form of acrylic, with only a 30 second window before they start to harden. Whatever happens – happens!  I let my mind go and my hands take over. Then, I hand paint each one to resemble metal or leather, using either tones and textures inspired by gazing at the centerpiece stone.  I love that each piece is one of a kind and can not be recreated. I absolutely love what I do and hope it reflects in my work.
