How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I found it a long time ago through a friend's blog and loved the projects I found
What projects are you currently working on?
I just finished making 3 lines of jewelry for an upcoming show - one is called Xian and is a collection of hand painted necklaces on leather. The second is called Paprika which incorporates very unusual (textured) paper focals and the third is called the Bohemian affair which is a set of metal and yarn necklaces that have a very bohemian feel.
