Growing up on a sailboat in the caribbeing BVI, if you wanted something, you made it. or repurposed something, however most of the time you had to find a way to repair what you already had. so I grew up in this swirling cauldron of ideas. I left home(I lived on a sailing cat) on a 17ft, Raven sailing dinghy. fitted out with a pup tent so that I could live on it. while sourcing safety gear to take with me, a friend of a friend gave me an enormous bag of mixed up glass beads. As I had just recently learned to wrap fossilized shark teeth, using monal seizing wire, so it wouldn't rust or turn funny colors as copper will when exposed to a salty environment. they said I could string the glass beads with the shark teeth and sell the necklaces to make some money on the trip sailing down the eastern seaboard of the USA. as it was I made many necklaces out of that bag. This was the start of, my love for making Jewelry.
