That is a question I answer and redefine every day. A little goofy, kinda crazy, and I am still deciding what I want to be when I grow up. I am a mom of two amazing daughters who inspire me every day. I am a wife, an artist, a teacher, and a student. I do all these things while living with Multiple Sclerosis. My life may have taken a different path than I had planned, but I am lucky that I get to try so many things. How many people can put “tutu maker” on their resume? Having MS has made me the person I am today. : Never taking things for granted and never holding back! I always wanted to design jewelry, but it never seemed like the right time. I was always up to something creative, and I kept myself busy even if it was only in my mind. One day I woke up and realized I have right now, and now is the perfect time to embark on my journey to become a jewelry designer. I researched, watched every YouTube tutorial I could and eventually took a jewelry class at The Arts Center of the Capitol Region. It was there I had the opportunity to Study with Siobhan Byron who taught me things that no jewelry class ever would and I am grateful. I sold Jewelry until I was able to build my home studio and now I can be found selling at local Markets in the Troy area. There are many markets closer to home but Troy has a little something magical about its community where I just feel home.
