I retired on May 24th.  It still has not settled in my head, but I know that it is real.  We sold our home of 15 years in less than a day and moved to Florida on June 4th.  Then we bought and closed on our new home in less than one month.  The studio is set up and I am rocking the jeweler's bench once again.

All of these recent changes come on the heels of the 3 year decline of my mother and her death in November.  These last three years our lives were defined by ours roles as caregivers and daughters and there was little time for creativity, vacations or adventure.  Now that this chapter has ended, we are moving on with sad hearts, but also high hopes and expectations.  

So, look for this website to be updated with new jewelry and an occasional Blog post.
