About Me

I love hammering gold, silver, copper, brass, and bronze into amazing textured custom rings, custom wedding rings, engagement rings, and other unique artisan jewelry.  I have an extensive selection of men's and women's rings, along with gemstone and pearl jewelry in my SilverSmack shop on Etsy.  Please stop in and take a look.

A Poem I wrote

Beyond Semi-precious

Lapidolite, Dumorterite, Iolite

even the sedimentary syllables shine


nutured by nature

colored by the earth

flecked
mottled
dappled

fossilized blooms

petrified sunsets

envelop me

Top Ten Mom Moments

10. My son gave me a plant that never grew. But I kept that cup of dirt for over a year.

9. When my daughter was just 3, she made me a bookmark for Mother's Day that said MOM and I was very impressed.

8. When my son gave me his first Valentine where he drew everyone in the family and he wrote his name. He was so proud.

7. When I told my daughter I was taking her to see "High School Musical on Ice" her whole face lit up and she hugged me and said I was the greatest.

6. We were driving in the van and my son (3) randomly said, "I'm so glad you're my mom."

5. My daughter painted me a huge crooked heart for Valentine's Day.

4. After I had a hysterectomy and was in the hospital for three days, my son (who is normally very physical) tried so hard to be gentle with me and give me a gentle hug. (But he really wanted to jump on me!)

3. My daughter gave me a card that said, "Roses are Red. Violets are Blue. No one could have a better mom than you."

2. My son told me I'm his number one mom.

1. When I was 8.5 months pregnant with my son and I was exhausted, so I was at my mom's taking a nap. My daughter who was three at the time, climbed up on the the bed, kissed me on the forehead, and left.
