A little bit about me, I was the odd ball in school, the one who always noticed things that no one else seemed to catch, which didn't make me very popular. But now all that strangeness has paid off! My ability to notice the odd and unusual, to home in on the difference that can make the difference, is a gift am glad to possess. I live in Amsterdam with my rather chic and hip teenage daughter and 4 cats. I design jewelry, that is like the rest of me a bit strange and not very commercial, but sells occasionally and that is also good.
