Hey, thanks for checking out my page. I'm a new graphic design student, but I also really love jewelry design and landscape photography. I came to deviantART to share my work with the world, network with other artists, and promote my creations. Feel free to check out my gallery (to the left) and my wonderful collection of favorites (below and to the left). Enjoy!

Porcelain Jasper donut necklace
This large porcelain jasper pendant hangs from strands of high quality seed beads in harmonious colors in an understated design, as not to distract from the beauty of the showpiece. Colors of purple, tans and offwhites stand out beautifully against black!

Available! Ask me.

Autumn creek
The smell of fallen leaves and mushrooms.. Golden leaves float through the air and come to rest in a soft bed on the ground. The sound of rushing water and a feeling of peace as the crisp air surrounds you. This is autumn!

What a wonderful beginning to fall I've had! I have had the fortune of spending a lot of it traveling, so (of course!) there are many pictures to share. I also wanted to talk a little bit (ha) about it as well.

The first trip was at the end of Sepember. My s/o, Kurt,'s parents were making a trip down south to visit extended family. They were gracious enough to include me along with them and him in their trip, for which I was very happy and grateful. I was excited. Adventure! I haven't done much out of state travel at all. I was excited to see the mountains.

We traveled through Indiana and Ohio, mostly flat farmland it seems. Then it was through Cincinnati and over the bridge into Kentucky. We rose up and up in elevation into the first mountain range. You could see a shelf of low rainclouds enveloping the first rise of mountains, and finally we entered though. I saw walls of sedimented layers of rock on either side, and soon green vines began to overtake everything. Image and video hosting by TinyPic
We passed by Lexington and then soon it was through Tennessee, where there were more mountains and green everywhere.

Soon we were off the main road and heading deep into the mountains, and entered into North Carolina. We went up windy roads and switchbacks, higher and higher. When you look off into the distance you could start seeing so far that the green of the groundcover become bluer and bluer until it meets with the blue of the sky. Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Finally we reached our destination in Asheville, NC, seemingly the home of artists and crafters of all kinds. This was such a welcome surprise to me! I visited craft shops which had loads of stuff you can't find up north. People actually take crafting seriously there, with guilds, festivals, galleries on every block, all centered around crafts. Not the kind of Wal-mart plastic beads you find where I'm from. I felt like I was in a second home! Kurt's family welcomed me and said there was a place for us whenever we wanted to return. They were so great, even bought a lot of my jewelry!

We stayed for a week in Asheville. Kurt and I went to Chimney rock and climbed 26 stories of stairs to the top, and saw views that went on for 75 miles!

We also went for a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway and saw some great views there, too. Image and video hosting by TinyPic
We checked out shops and galleries and visited with family and had a wonderful Southern meal at a fancy B&B for his grandmothers 90th birthday. Oh my God, the biscuits. And the smoked gouda mac and cheese! Lastly it was a trolley ride with the family around Asheville before it was goodbye. I was so sad to leave. It was a wonderful place, and they are wonderful people. I'm glad to have had the chance to meet them and see all the beautiful sights. Who knows, maybe my crafts will have a place there someday.

The timing on this trip worked out in a way that a week later we were scheduled to go to Mackinaw City/Island. We had had that trip set up a while in advance, whereas this trip to Asheville was coordinated by Kurt's parents. Hey, I won't complain! I'll talk about that trip later, this journal entry is long enough.

Hope you enjoyed reading!

The other side of Arch Rock by asukouenn
The other side of Arch Rock
So I went on my yearly excursion to Mackinaw City/Island MI just recently, and the weather was just exquisite. Whereas last year it was cold and rainy the entire weekend, this year there was nary a cloud in the sky! This time I decided to go on a bike ride around the entire island. The visitor's guide said it was 8 miles but only an hour's ride without stopping. INDEED. What they didn't say was the sharp, cold and unforgiving wind that hits you when you near the north side of the island. Riding against that wind was brutal! But it was well worth it, it was beautiful. Last year I posted a picture of Arch Rock, raindrops and all. Well, here's what it looks like from the other side (and with a blue sky!) It was quite difficult to get a good shot of it with the sun in the position it was, but I'd say this one was passable.
