I am native Hispanic born and raised in South America. In high school, I took a jewelry-making class and enjoyed it very much. I began with the basics and, throughout the years, learned the wire wrapping technique.
In 1989, I moved to St. Louis where I met my future husband, Greg. We married in 1990 and later had two wonderful daughters, Talia and Josie. As my daughters got older, I had more time to get involved in designing and making jewelry for my personal use. I would get many compliments on my jewelry, so I decided to make jewelry for other people, selling my creations at arts and crafts shows. Throughout the years, I have met many people and am always pleased to have them return to shows and order more jewelry, either to complete their set or compliment their wardrob.
