Originally from Harford County Maryland, I live in Alexandria, Virginia. Jewelry has always been a love of mine, as is music, travel, animals, and the outdoors. Sometime in 2001, I started seriously experimenting with making jewelry.
After living in Bavaria for 7 years (and seeing much of Europe), I spent almost 3 months in Ireland in 1997, much of it in County Sligo--thus the name Sligo's Treasures. Most of my travels since 1998 have been repeated trips to Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona. I love the Colorado Plateau area and would love to live there someday. I've been to Alaska once, Hawaii three times, and driven cross country to Wyoming once, with my Dad, to see cousins Fran, Carolyn, Pat and Karen and their families. In May 2009 I visited Banff and Jasper in Alberta, Canada, driving from Spokane, and was in awe of the raw beauty and wildness of the Canadian Rockies.
