It's really all too complicated to type in a tiny box. The short version is that I've been a bead jewelry designer for over 15 years and along the way became interested in soap making. When my house was overrun by soap, I started selling it, too. Then, I thought it might
be fun to saw and solder metal to make even more jewelry. That is how my 3 Etsy shops were born: Handcrafted Expressions, Soap Sense, and Coil & Flame. I am a teacher by day, and self-taught crafter, photographer, and web designer in my "time off."
