I've been an avid crocheter since I was 14. I received my BA in Fine Arts from San Francisco State University where I studied with weaver Candace Crockett, sculptor Stephen De Staebler, and ceramicist David Kuraoka, among others. In the early 2000s I became a Craft Yarn Council of America Certified Crochet Instructor. I developed a series of popular classes and workshops that I taught in the San Francisco Bay Area and nationally for many years. I sold my crocheted jewelry and accessories at art festivals in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2012 I moved to Pittsburgh, PA where I sold my work at The Gallery on 43rd Street and Robin's Nest. Sadly, both galleries have closed. I'm currently selling my work from my online store and at Angela Nolfi & Company at 531 Chartiers Ave, in McKees Rocks, PA 15136.
Jewelry and accessories not only enhance what we wear, but give us the opportunity to express our individuality. The right necklace, a beautifully draped scarf, or that special handbag can take an outfit from blah to wow! Handmade items that we use in our homes reflect our personality and style. With a crochet hook and a strand of fiber I create unique jewelry, accessories, and home goods for people who value fine craftsmanship and originality.
I'm a Craft Yarn Council of America Certified Crochet Instructor. And yes, I can teach both right and left handed students! I'm planning to start teaching once in person classes are a viable option again.
