After painting a few blanks she decided she wanted to see what it would be like to turn her creations into wearable art. After sharing her pieces on instagram and facebook with friends, interest grew and she started selling out of earrings almost immediately. She has expanded her collections to stones, pearls, chain, wire wrapping, leather, polymer clay, and more.
