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'm now in the ancient studies program at the University of South Dakota, and my art history expertise ranges as far back as the Paleolithic up through the early 20th century. I enjoy the fields of religion, women's studies, 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?
