I started designing jewelry professionally when I realized that my youngest kids would be going to school soon. Since then my designs have appeared in dozens of magazine and publications, including Jewelry Stringing Magazine, and I'm thrilled to say that my first book, Global Style Jewelry (Interweave, 2016) is hot off the press! My style is globally inspired, with a priority on wearable, trendy style. When I'm not spending time with my five kids, designing, I love to run, bike, travel, knit, stitch and eat. And I'm never happier than when I'm tailgating at a White Sox game.
