Tip of the Week
Hard Cider

Dry cider is best with strong cheese (gorgonzola) and pork dishes.

Sweet cider goes well with spicy foods and is great for sipping.

Serve chilled.

Everyone should be able to afford art. By art, I mean real one-of-a-kind pieces that are handmade by the artist. This is the philosophy I use to create my art.
The raw materials are what inspire my designs. Whether I am working with gemstones and silver or polymer clay (pictured above), I often find myself staring at these objects until I am driven to turn it into something new. I go out of my way NOT to look at what other jewelry artists are doing to ensure that what I create is of my own inspiration.
When I first began working with polymer clay, I wondered if what I was doing was too obvious. My confidence was boosted, however, when I introduced my polymer clay designs to the public in early September 2007. Customers commented on how unique and special my art was and my sales soared above my wildest expectations.

I started making and selling jewelry in 2002. Due to positive feedback from customers and good sales, my business has grown by leaps and bounds over the last five years. I have lived in Oregon all of my life and am thankful for the great farmers' markets and art venues that have allowed me to flourish in my craft. I am especially grateful to all of the people who show their appreciation for what I do by purchasing my creations. Portland is truly a wonderful place to live.
