I'm always looking for ways to mix my love of books with my love of beads!


I'm so happy you're here.

As you might have already guessed, my life revolves primarily around two things: beads and books. Every day I'm writing, editing, reading, and/or designing jewelry. Occasionally I even remember to eat lunch.

I sell my handmade work online and in selected shops, mostly in the U.S. While I started as a jewelry maker, I've branched out to creating other small gift items such as bookmarks, keychains, and ornaments.

I also write articles, essays, and the (very) occasional piece of fiction on all sorts of topics including coffee, bad haircuts, and grocery store checkout lines.
