Here is what the designer had to say:
1. How long have you been creating?
All my life…and I am really REALLY old! LOL I think I came into this life with a very strong impulse to translate what I feel and see into art of some sort. I do have a fine arts background as well as a parallel career in holistic healing and counseling. It is most satisfying when those two flows come together.
I have only one close relative left! Can you believe that??? It is my son Ariel who just turned 25 (so, you see, I am not THAT ancient, LOL) and is still managing to make my hair stand on end. He is pursuing a career in entertainment as a standup comic who does all his own writing as well as a film actor.
3. what got you interested in jewelry making?
When I was a little girl, my grandmother gave me a tin of beads and odds and ends. I would make and remake all kinds of jewelry to both entertain myself and to wear. Jewelry design is in my blood…and so is apparel design, photography, drawing, sewing, etc.
4. What do you do in your spare time?
I think you mean hobbies. I really don’t think of 'spare' time. It’s all useful! I do like to study up on quantum physics and cruise around the internet looking for sites on weird science. Is that surprising? I also meditate and chant every single day. It is part of how I utilize my time.
5. The favorite thing in your shop?
My favorite things are the ELEMENTALZ because that is where the art and healing really come together for me. I sometimes combine them with my healing sessions with people...which include astrology, readings, hands on healing etc. A custom made ELEMENTALZ can be very useful in the person's process.
