About

I've been a crafter all my life. I started sewing when I was 6 years old, and I've been making jewelry since I was 9 or 10. I'm best at applied organic chemistry "crafts" in the forms of soap-making and brewing. Making books is my favorite craft of all time, though.

I spent 8 semesters since 2009 as a fine arts student focusing on printmaking and book arts before switching to history and art history. I hold a B.A. in history (ancient studies) with art history and fine arts minors. I enjoy the fields of religion, anthropology, and archaeology as well.

I love the fact some of your soaps have dice in them, any plans for d10? We use that in our Warhammer 40k RP's, would be a great gift for us geeks!
I'm not 100% sure why I decided to ask that here when I could have done it on facebook or etsy lol.

Hi
I noticed you make jewellery and I was wondering if you could give me any tips on how to make the rings that necklaces/keyrings are attached to, what wire to use etc. I just want to get those little round circles so I can attach things. I don't want to have to buy loads of the rings from somewhere when I can make my own how I want them.
I have read on CO+K that when making jewellery and using wire you need an anvil+hammer, is that always the case?
