I am the designer and creator of Carnelian Sol Designs. I create joyful designs to feed your soul incorporating antiquities with natural elements.

My designs include jewelry, hand-dyed textiles and Altered Art bottles and jars. I enjoy bringing fantasy themes to life in jewelry including Pirates’ Treasures necklaces and earrings and Bohemian Medley and Gypsy Tales Bracelets.

I have been designing and creating since childhood when I learned to do embroidery, beading and textile dyeing. During the 1980s beading and sewing became a welcome outlet from my college studies.

I grew up in Madison WI and graduated from University of Wisconsin with a degree in Landscape Architecture combining nature, history and art. I live outside of Madison with my landscaper husband on a 3.5 acre farmette.

I began selling my designs in 2011 at a few art and craft fairs. Since April 2015, I have made this business my full time career. I have items in local retail locations and exhibit at art and craft shows most weekends from May through December.

Check out my business Facebook page and ETSY pages where you can purchase, see my show schedule or contact me. In addition, I am very active on Pinterest if you want to see photos of my creations and shows.
