My husband, Dave and I have a small farm on the edge of a ridge in Fox. We raised two sons here. We grow a garden, have a small orchard, raise cows, a pig and chickens. We, mostly Dave, built our log house and have solar power for electricity. It is a wonderful way to live.
When my hands started to wear out from making mosaic tables a friend suggested I try their glass studio and learn lamp work. I enjoyed it so much I took lessons from Sage Holland and her son Beau Anderson and bought several books for instructions and ideas.
My husband was gracious enough to give up his desk in his shop to me so I could have my own work shop. I enjoy trying different patterns. I combine colors from nature that are pleasing to the eye. I make earrings, bracelets, necklaces, single beads to place on a cord or silver chain. The earrings have sterling ear wires. The necklaces have either a sterling or silver-plated toggles or clasps. I also make necklaces and earrings to match.
