Dreams really do come true! After 30 years of working in the corporate world, it was time to begin living my dreams. Thanks to my husband's persistence we decided to take my hobby to the next level. I was ready for more. I wasn’t sure exactly what “more” was but, quickly came to the realization that life is too short not to be doing what you love. I have been making jewelry for nearly 20 years. I am a self-taught jewelry artist and have yet to find a medium that I haven’t enjoyed. To say I am addicted to color is an understatement. My sister and I had worked for nearly three years on developing a technique for painting lucite flowers. I must admit this is my true passion. My jewelry line consists of various techniques including wire wrapping, metal work, bead weaving, stitching, loom work and enameling, just to name a few.
We opened our new studio in October of 2018, which carries the name from where it all began - in our home, house number 36. Studio 36 carries beautiful hand-painted treasures, photography, jewelry and amazing handcrafted one-of-a-kind gifts including conversational Steampunk style lamps created by my husband, Jack. There is a story behind each piece so be sure to ask when you stop in. We offer a variety of classes. Be sure to check out our website for additional information.
