Our family moved to the North Fork in 1988 after spending many summers on the East End. I have always enjoyed painting and craft making, and also performing, at the North Fork Community Theatre, where I served on the Board of Directors for a number of years. I began making jewelry during my tenure as Recording Secretary with the Long Island Geology and Mineral Society, being inspired by our many "crafty" members and the vendors at our annual Mineral and Gem show at Mattituck High School. I am currently a full time Real Estate agent with Douglas Elliman Real Estate. The shut down in 2020 gave me the time to practice my skills, as Real Estate agents were prohibited from working. I find making jewelry to be a calming way to de-stress and relax. I hope you enjoy wearing my jewelry as much as I enjoyed making it.
