Brief Summary
Hello! My name is Maureen and I come from a long line of artistic women. Whether as a seamstress, poet, milliner, design artist, painter, musician, writer or dancer, the women in my family all find time for the arts.

I found my artistic calling through jewelry. My love of crystals, gemstones and mineral stones led me to start playing with beads. Then I decided to actually learn the basics of making jewelry - I took a few classes, got some books. Eventually, I dedicated myself (and sections of my home) to having some real fun exploring my creativity. I've been creating jewelry for about 6 years. I originally made jewelry with natural, semi-precious stones, which I love, but I found it difficult to find stones and beads that really inspired me to be innovative. When I began working with glass a little over 2 years ago and I was amazed by its versatility and beauty. The colors, cuts, shapes, styles, embellishments and innovative techniques feed my soul and amuse my muse every day. I am now choosing to focus on my glass work, specializing in artisan glass pendants.

My jewelry has evolved into an eclectic mix of styles and designs - all of them meant 2b cherished. I cherish the road my life has taken thus far and I cherish whatever the future brings. Cherish the Unexpected and Cherish the Everyday! 
Awards and Recognition
I am proud that my Dragonfly Meadow pendant was selected as the winner of the Jewelry Category of the 2012 AAE Glass Extreme Fusing Contest.
