My taste in jewelry is eclectic. Some of the pieces presented here I have made from collected beads from around the world. Many of the beads are from Yemen, Turkmen beads from Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Pakistan which are countries where I have worked. Others are designed by me but made by the Afghan women I worked with on a project funded by USAID helping Afghan women entrepreneur's increase their sales by producing new products.

This group of items was made by me.

These pieces were designed by me but made by Afghan women in Afghanistan. These women participated in a USAID funded program which I was a consultant. The goal of the project was to help the women with product design in order to increase their sales.
