i'm an artist from pittsburgh who fashions jewelry and accessories from found objects. a flea market junkie and an old-school hippie, i travel across the country buying goodies and selling my designs. i write about my travels in my blog titled 'trails and tribulations'
i love decorating with the things i find in my travels, predominantly vintage or antique items. i feel surrounded by the people who had loved these items in their previous life. i especially love using items for purposes other than that for which they were intended. i believe you should surround yourself with things you love, and your home will become your sanctuary ! i recently purchase a 110 year old house which i will gradually be renovating with things i find a long the road !
