At the Columbus Winterfair show I request to be next to Ruby. We usually are both traveling alone and can watch out for each other.
When Kent and Rick started doing shows they immediately nabbed Ruby as their friend too. She has even spent a weekend at their lovely Silver Hills home.
Ruby and Kent clicked right away with their love for sewing and fiber.
Ruby makes wonderful jackets out of African fabric. She imports the fabric to America. However; she got to go on the trip of a lifetime to Africa this past summer. Naturally she wanted to shop for fabric in the markets and was told it was too dangerous to be"on the loose" without a body guard. Well this did not stop Ruby who went to the Marketplace with her personal armed guard. Now we call her Ruby on the Loose.
I have been interested in ART all of my life. I studied art in college and opened a porcelain restoration business in Louisville which combined my interest in art with my appreciation and love of detail. I have always been a collector of many things, amassing hundreds of thousands of buttons, trinkets, charms, bijoux, beads, found objects, and all sorts of fun things. I currently produce a line of whimsical art jewelry which I wholesale and retail across the country. I've been married to Sam for 20 plus years and we have 3 rescued Black Chow Chow's. Bear, KeLe, and Zoee my children with FUR! I will be sharing my various collections, art shows, artists, friends etc. And any thing else I think is cool will be in this Blog.
