|One more thing...
I am the first person to admit that as a child I was what people would call "a handful". I have always loved little details and exploring the world of small wonders around me. This curiosity led my mom to probably coin the phrase, "Don't touch!"
I have an aunt who my daughter affectionately calls La La. La La has the best trinkets in the world, scattered beautifully all over her home. There isn't a corner that doesn't have something pretty to look at. I loved going to visit La La when I was growing up and I am sure that this is where I developed my trained eye for little treasures.
I create the designs of Jake and Gigi with inspiration from the treasures that I find, whether they are vintage beads, colorful crystals, or quirky trinkets. All of my designs are created by what I see visually and feel at the moment. This spontaneity means each of my pieces are unique and one of a kind.
I would like to thank all the wonderful women who have inspired and encouraged me in my life and told me I was THAT good; Fida...BMcGee... and many many more.
Thank you also to all of the people who love Jake and Gigi designs as much as I do and have supported me so far.
A very special thank you to my family for all of your love and for putting up with what most people would still call "a handful".
Always and forever, all of my love to my two children Jake and Gigi; the most beautiful part of my life.
