The latest addition to the website is a resource for custom made area rugs - you pick the pattern, size, colors and thickness all at affordable prices. Visit the Area Rug page to view samples and get more details.

My husband does custom remodeling and has worked for several of my clients.

Because my children have lived extensively overseas, my husband and I have visited them. Several years ago, we visited my daughter Brenda in Africa who was living in Arusha, Tanzania. It turns out that Arusha is the only place in the world where Tanzanites have been discovered. This was before Tanzanites became so popular. We literally felt we were sitting on a gold mine (OK a gem mine). We ended up buying thousand and thousands of dollars worth of tanzanites, garnets, emeralds, amethyst, citrine, rubies, sapphires, etc. A few years ago we visited my other daughter in Bali, where we took some of our gemstones and designed our own line of jewelry using the unbelievably skilled Balinese artisans. We sell our products by appointment in our studio, by having a big show once or twice a year, and through our website at

We have since made a second trip to Bali and spent months there designing new jewelry. The jewelry is truly beautiful and each is one of a kind. I would love to show it to you in person so you can see the real works of art.

We also do Charity Fundraising events and would like to help your organization make money.
