Because I grew up in an"English home"( my parents immigrated after the war), I was greatly influenced by their love of their home country. Consequently, after I graduated from high school and going through basic training in the Utah air National Guard, I lived in
England for two years.
While there I met other relatives and enjoyed seeing the wonderful architecture of years gone by. I was fascinated by the way the castles and cathedrals were built, with the limited means the people had at that time.
Over the many years I have collected books about the building methods they used to construct them, and so... I started to create original types of jewelry boxes ; the structures built around the Medieval era definitely influenced what I have come up with.
The items I am now showing are only a beginning of the many variations and details I want to create in the future!
