My jewelry design began in 1989, when I took a class on Faïence ceramic clay, an ancient Egyptian jewelry art form. During the slide show of Egyptian jewelry, I felt something come alive inside my soul! I was so inspired that I went home that night and made my first necklace. After my fired faïence pieces were finished; from that moment, I knew I wanted to make jewelry for the rest of my life. I started out with stained glass jewelry, hand wrapping crystals in sterling silver and gold wire and was on my way. I learned some silversmithing and also learned to make Lampworked glass beads out of Murono glass. As I continued with my jewelry work, I opened a shop by the name “Angel Peace Custom Jewelry” in my home town. As time went by I worked with perfecting my style and my jewelry art design. In the coming years, my jewelry was sold in many galleries around the country in the mid to late 90’s. My journey as an artist continued from the early 90’s to the present time.

Through being diagnosed with an auto-immune disease named Neuro-Sarcoidosis, I’ve experienced many health challenges since 1992. There are some times that I need to rest, and have taken a hiatus. In 2011, I opened an Etsy shop that I named “Greenway Terrace.” I have thoroughly enjoyed the process! Read Less

The young artist blossomed in my soul as a child from collecting nature’s treasures such as sparkly pebbles, rocks, stones, old glass, old keys, rusty barn door and window hardware, arrow heads, metal detector finds, and flowers and leaves I would put into books. I found many treasures on our farm, in the barns, around the river banks and often at farm sales. Nicknamed “Sprite” at age 2 - I also loved sparkly things, I used to sit at the end of the driveway and look at the pavement sparkle in the sunlight, along with some of the pebbles I found that had natural quartz on the surface. I was especially excited when we went to the theater and the entrance had diamonds in the sidewalk or so I thought! I particularly loved the holidays and all the sparkling lights, glitter and colors that came with the hustle and bustle. My momma used to let me play with her jewelry box, and would look through her jewelry. As a child with strong mechanical abilities, I would try to figure out how those beautiful things were put together. When I became a teen, I absolutely loved fashion and accessories. Though it took years, the natural progression for me was to become interested in creating beautiful jewelry, because of the lovely trinkets, sparkles and baubles that I adored. Read Less
