I spent my childhood surrounded by felt, construction paper and paste, happily cutting and gluing. Nowadays, I still get a thrill from creating things. I'm also crazy about searching local flea markets for 1960s and 70s fabric, toys and books. I love the colors and quality of these treasures, and it's so fun to incorporate them into whimsical jewelry and gift items.
I was born in Chicago and grew up in Indiana, but I have been living in Switzerland for over 20 years. I share my home in Basel with my husband Simon and our cat Bruce. We're all pretty kooky.
