Andrea has been designing jewelry for many years but it was only three years ago that she began selling to the public, at craft shows and online. Andrea likes to work with natural stones, including ocean agates she finds around her in her home state of Oregon. When Andrea is designing her jewelry, she likes to start with a one focal point and build her designs around it. Andrea has recently been making lots of earrings because she believes one cannot have too many pairs of earrings. She's probably right!
Andrea recently moved from a coastal town in Oregon to the Central Oregon's high desert country. One thing she misses the most about the coast is meeting lots of dogs. Although Andrea has a cat (who would be quite upset if she brought a dog home), she loved playing with the dogs on the beach, street, and those of her friends and neighbors.
In addition to Artfire, Andrea is starting a shop on Zibbet, although she doesn't have too many items listed there yet.
