I love to mix "craft" supplies in my jewelry creations. I don't like to limit myself.

I mix "everything" in my jewelry. I consider myself an inventive artist/designer. If I am working on an idea in the middle of the night and don't have what I need, I invent it. This makes for original and unique pieces of jewelry.
Works for me....
