She began making paintings commissioned by restaurants, businesses, and private collectors. "I found metal in a junkyard and hammered it out on the back of an old frying pan."She began making jewelry and selling it on the streets of San Francisco from tackle boxes. Some local stores began stocking her creations, and a businessman, Shashi Singapuri, took samples of her work to China. She went to China in 1971 and discovered cloisonn\u00e9, a kind of enamel work, with which she designed paintings and had the designs made into earrings.There is a huge lot of nifty costume jewelry pieces from my personal collection being listed this week.
