Tell us who you are and a bit about yourself.
Right. Start out with the softball questions. Wow. I'm a average middle american chick who's probably too old to be a chick any more, but I don't like the alternate terms, so I'm sticking with it. I'm pretty boring on the outside--husband, two kids, two junky cars, house. You know the drill. I'm not much less boring on the inside, but I like to think I am. Oh, and I like long walks on the beach.

We know you create awesome Upcycled Jewelry, but what else do you like to do?
I love perusing the isles at thrift stores, which is great because I find lots of cool tins that way. I love to hang/work at my neighborhood coffee shop. Our neighborhood is filled with fascinating people doing amazing things and since they are all regulars, I get to have at least a dozen great conversations each morning. It's a perfect way to get all those synapses firing. I like to hang with my family too. Unless they are annoying me. Then I want them to go away.

Where does your inspiration come from?
The tins! Even if I've touched a tin a hundred times before, it's always possible to see something new. I also find lots of inspiration in boring, day-to-day things. Like a great color combination in someone's outfit, a pattern created by sunlight through a fence or the curve of a door handle. You really just never know what might ignite a whole new exploration.

Stranded on a desert island - If you could only have one book, movie, and CD what would they be?
Movie: Not Cast Away! Dang. I'm not much for watching movies more than once. Okay, both seasons of Rome. That's like one movie, right?
Book: Honestly, I think it would be e.e. cummings Complete Poems. It's the only book I can think of that would be engaging enough to read over and over again.
CD: Don't I get at least a nano? If I had to pick just one I'm going with anything Neko Case.

If you could spend the day with one artist or craftsman (dead or alive) who would it be?
It's a bit obvious, but Charles and Ray Eames. They were pretty bad ass. I think I could learn a lot from them in a day.

What handmade possession do you most cherish?
I cherish the concept of handmade more than any particular objects. I like stuff--especially thoughtful stuff--but tend not to get too attached to any of it.

What is your favorite color?
Seriously?! One? You can't make me. I love aquamarine, persimmon, cerise, and chartreuse. And I won't go away without also mentioning cornflower, crimson, citrine and chocolate. So there.

Rolling Stones or Beatles? Beatles or Fleas?
Fleet Foxes.
