I am a 57 year old Nurse Practitioner, semi-retired. I used to own and operate a very small web-based jewelry business, as I create unique jewelry with Venetian glass beads & silk. Recent battles with breast cancer forced me to re-examine my values, capabilities & life choices.
Now, I enjoy collecting & restoring vintage ceramic clocks! I also design and create clocks with re-purposed Italian art objects, primarily Florentine Crafts.
I moved from New York City to the Ann Arbor Michigan area in 2006 with my husband John. I am of Italian descent-my mother was from the Campania Region of Italy (Caserta Pratella, near Naples) and my father was from the Lazio Region of Italy (San Giovanna Incarico, near Rome). I love all things Italian...I am a real Italian-o-phile! I am modest, self-depricating, very basic, very old-fashioned kinda person.
My dog, Ernie and my cats are my kids! I also like reading, traveling, the outdoors, crocheting, cooking...oh and trying/testing/wearing perfume!
Restoring clocks, making clocks, my dog & cat, TRAVEL, perfume-lol, my c.1870's farmhouse, antiques
