Q & A

get all this stuff?
A: From Antique shops, estate sales and flea markets.
Q: Can you make
something from my own memorabilia?

of things can I send to use?
A: Anything, as long as it's not too big or too heavy.
Q: Do you
have a studio?
A: Yes, my studio is in New Orleans, LA
Q: I have a
sister who is a doctor and she plays tennis. Could you make a pin for her
A: Of course, just advise as to the size and the deadline.
Q: How long
will it take to make it?
A: That depends on the season of the year (shows in the fall reduce my available custom work time), and the availability of certain pieces but usually within a few weeks.
Q: Could I
ask you to be on the lookout for special things for me, such as a particular
locket or watch fob?

Q: Most of
your things are one-of-a-kind but what can you do if I wanted 5 tennis-theme
pins for my team for Christmas?
A: I use the Neiman-Marcus approach: "let us choose one for you". Each pin will have the same theme but the parts will be different on each.
things can you duplicate exactly?
A: Martini and Margarita earrings and pins, fleur-de-lis earrings, bracelets and necklaces, watch inner movement cufflinks, sterling wine bottle, wine glass and corkscrew earring sets and many more.
