A little bit about me.
Throughout my life, I've been interested in, and good at, a lot of different things. While awesome, this has made it hard to pick one field to focus on for a career, plus I get bored doing the same thing all the time.
At some point I learned the word for what I was. I am a polymath.
As a polymath, my life has taken me in many directions, but it keeps coming back to jewelry, fiber, and websites. I have many other interests as well, but I've decided to focus on the main three as my livelihood.
I live in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with a rabbit, Fiona, and a cat, Lily, and I frequently walk in the woods behind my house.
Handmade Artisan Jewelry
I've been making jewelry off and on since 1988. My current work features sterling silver, copper, semi-precious gems, fiber, and found objects (usually not all at once, but sometimes!) and is for sale at Riin Gill Design and Weasel and Fitz.
Antique & Vintage Jewelry
When my mom died, I inherited her vast collection of jewelry, dating back to the late 1800s. I'm researching the pieces (I love research!) and selling them at Mama Liked Shiny Things.
I've been spinning since 1991. I have a selection of my handspun yarns available for sale here.
I also do custom spinning. Do you have some fiber (dog hair, angora, roving or combed top, etc.) that you would like spun into yarn? I do that!
Is something wonky on your WordPress site, and trying to figure it out is making your head hurt? I've been using WordPress for about 10 years. Chances are, I can probably fix it for you! Contact me and tell me what's going on.
