Every Monday now through December 16 I am interviewing other artists and crafters in the hopes of spreading some handmade love and appreciation. You can read more about it here. The month of November features jewelry and accessories.
My good friend Nina loves to sew and she made me two zippered polka-dotted pouches a few years ago. Not only are they cute, they are practical. I still use then every day!
I love traveling! I’ve been lucky to be able to live in Paris as well as travel around Europe and Asia. When I can’t travel globally, I like to explore my city, Chicago. One of my favorite things to do while travelling is to buy a piece of local handmade jewelry as souvenir.
I am a huge U2 fan! I have all their albums and I have stood in line for hours to buy concert tickets (back when you had to do that). When I was in Ireland, I even visited the castle that’s on the cover of “The Unforgettable Fire” album.
