Where in South Carolina do you live, and were you born here? If not, how long have you been in SC?
I was actually born in Aiken, SC but moved to Rock Hill, SC in 1990.
What do you like best about living in South Carolina?
I love living near the coast and I love the climate here.
How long have you been involved in your craft, and how did you get started?
I started making jewelry 7 years ago to give as Christmas gifts. I loved it so much I started doing it for fun.
Do you work from your home, or do you have a brick and mortar store?
I actually work full time for a law firm but make jewelry in my spare time. (What little bit I have since I have 2 kids)
Who or what inspires you?
I am mostly inspired by beautiful colors. I love going to the bead store and seeing all the different colors, stones, and textures.
Do you have a method for remembering ideas you want to implement, such as a notebook or tape recorder, etc.?
No method I write some ideas down but for the most part they just stay packed away in my memory.
What do you do when you hit a brick wall creatively and nothing is working?
Definitely put it down and go do something else. Later when I come back to it I can get a fresh prespective.

Well I make jewelry as a hobby. In 5 years I just hope to still be making jewelry and to have increased my skills.
