Although I may be better known as an award-winning children's author (my middle-grade-reader's novels have been published by HarperCollins Publishers), I also have a background in design. I was a graphic designer and illustrator for a little bit, a fashion designer for much, much longer, and a home stager for a while. I came to working with jewelry because I am a hobbyist rockhound, but one thing lead to another and I started working with old objects. Now, I focus, primarily, on recycling and upcycling materials. I especially love using items that weren't meant to be kept (ephemera) and items that weren't meant to be worn (junk).

I hope you enjoy my work and the stories that accompany the old objects I use.
