You know that line by Green Day: Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go… That’s what happened to me one day and it’s how I wound up departing from natural stones and making items with Swarovski crystals. I purchased a rather large inventory of supplies for a party project then decided not to do the project. So I wound up with all of these sparkling, hypnotizing crystals lookin’ me in the eye and I thought, there’s only one thing to do with 'em. And that’s what I did. I am unlikely to make more jewelry with Swarovski crystals no matter how addicting they are, nor am I likely to use the same combination of colors and materials again if I do. I’m pursing my artistic vision and pouring my energies into more challenging jewelry designs at the moment. I have five sketchbooks filled with more ideas than I’ll ever have time for! So get them if you like them—they're one-of-a-kind! (If you see something you like but need it in a different size, you’re out of luck. Well, okay, if you twist my arm I might do a similar piece just for you.)
