I was introduced to small metal arts when I could no longer stand up
to weld steel. Fabricating sculptural jewelry has become a passion.
After 12 years of being a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, I
decided that since I really did not want a practice, I should start

small metal arts at a community college; and am studying to become a

I’ve loved Jewellery for as long as I can remember. I have been
dabbling in metalwork for a couple of years but have not had as much

I am a newcomer to jewelry making. There is so much that I would
like to learn and at this point, it is a hobby for me. I am
particularly interested in making rings and bracelets.
Two Cats On Train Designs
After getting laid off in June, and at the age of 59, I decided I did
not want to look for work in what I was previously doing. (Mapping
for an electric company.) I decided to start making jewelry and with
the help of the Self Employment Assistance Program was able to start
my business. I love making jewelry with reclaimed parts and new
findings. I make Victorian style jewelry with a steampunk edge, train
jewelry, and cat jewelry. My husband and I love cats and are rail
fans involved in the steampunk genre/recreation. I am currently
taking classes through PennFoster for a certificate in Jewelry Design
and Repair while I continue making my one of designs. I love being
creative in my work and making jewelry,(or anything with my hands),
is the best!
