Introduction For the past 21 years Nick and I have been supporting ourselves without "real" jobs by making jewelry. Due to my supreme laziness and desire to take the easy way out I have stuck to and gotten pretty good at wirework. I love the soft metals of silver and aluminum because I can just use my hands, pliers and a hammer and anvil to make pretty things.I started out with small scale stuff and had fun taking it even smaller (like weaving tiny little baskets).I've taken it to the other extreme and gone bigger using 9 gauge aluminum to making our hanging vases and mirrors. Last year I realized that aluminum was perfect for big chunky earrings because it is so light weight.We have the cutest little kids in the world Henry,age 5 and Max who is 3. Time for anything beyond parenting and keeping them from killing themselves and us is limited. And sleep is never bountiful hence the need for a lot of good coffee.
Interests parenting, wireworking, crafting, reading, imagining good sleep, eating fattening food
