Dew On A Petal is a home-based freelance business located in Manhattan where I have made my home for the last four years. Some day I plan to make my way back to the country where I can grow my herbs and vegetables once again. But for now, I love NYC and I think I’ll stay awhile.
I earned a degree in art with a concentration in silk-screen printing, however I also received my first taste of the fiber and jewelry arts. I continued my studies in Art History as a graduate student at the Univsersity of Pittsburgh. Although I never completed my graduate degree, I have acquired a lifelong appreciation for the fine arts. I later learned lampwork beadmaking and jewelry techniques at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.
If I should ever happen to get bored, I also do thread crochet, machine knitting on my two machines, sew, make candles, and assemble herbal and dried wreaths, which was my first business as Dew On A Petal. Occasionally I actually cook, and especially enjoy making sushi and other exotic Asian dishes. I am also a collector of vintage jewelry and accessories, as well as antique crochet books.
