i make jewelry. i started making jewelry when my first son, henry, was about 2 years-old. i was pregnant with my second son, eugene. we would often stroll the shops at fred segal santa monica. there is a bead shop there that offered classes so i signed up for one. henry was busy entertaining the young guys who worked in the jean shop next to the bead store. they asked if the could 'let him out' of the stroller so that he could run around. they played and i learned silk string knotting and made my first necklace. in the picture are two of my recent creations from this week. i have been using mixed metals and incorporating natural elements such as white coral and gold dipped leaves.
