About me

Industry Arts
Occupation antique dealer/jewelry designer/Musician
Location Southern California, United States
Introduction ..I have been an antique dealer since 1985 and when the shop was sold, I retired from the "brick and mortar" life. Now I devote a lot of my time to music and the study of it...I have taken music lessons all my life...last year it was drums, this year electric bass. Playing the ukulele is part of my everyday routine along with a yoga practice. I design and fabricate a line of jewelry, sold at Beatnheart on Etsy. My work has been published several times in Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine and Jewelry Affaire. I also have a second shop where I sell vintage items from Europe and America, called BeatnheartVintage. I love photography, fashion and the combination of the two. Living in Southern California, I am a year round gardener. I’m married to an Englishman who’s calmed me down a bit. We live in a 1928 Spanish Revial Style home which we have restored.
