How I Learn

The learning process is amazing to me. What do we know, how do we know it, and when does it become actual knowledge, as opposed to ideas we are only aware of? I am sure there are more important philosophical applications to this, but I happened upon this discovery when I changed my hairstyle and my earring style had to change too. I have been selling earrings now for 11 years, but until my own hair changed did I really GET IT that women need a range of earring styles and lengths for many many reasons, and the main reason is not just personal taste. So until I experienced this for myself, the idea I was aware of wasn't really knowledge. Get it? Maybe this is why we really can't learn from other people's mistakes. Sigh. Anyhow, I have been working on some new earrings lately. I made the long long pair you see in the photo a while back, and found that I really enjoyed wearing them. I had some technical issues to work out (sodering with rubber) and now I have a few pairs to sell. I morphed the long pair into several shorter designs
as well.


  1. I love to read and appreciate your work.

  2. Someone said, “one’s innovation is thousand’s inspiration”. Now feeling, how correct is that. You have really inspired thousands of people like me to try something new. Really nice stuff.

I love the stones and pearls, and the magic that happens when I combine them, and then again combined with the glass I make. You can find me at an Art show somewhere in Northern California most weekends during the spring and summer. Email me at if you like.
