I taught myself the Japanese art of paper folding as my coping mechanism and therapy during the pandemic. I quickly decided to make jewelry with the origami and also learned to make real flower jewelry using resin. The patterns reflect nature and a delicate balance of fragility and function.
Luna, our Bernese Mountain dog, joined our family during quarantine in 2020. She enjoys laying on the cool tile of my Arts & Crafts room while I make jewelry.
As a child, I was fascinated with the crane. It was both a piece of beauty and a toy. I imagined I would take the crane on great adventures and show it the wonders of Bangkok, Thailand. Little did I know my imagination was so small compared to the world. Now look where the crane has taken me.
