Smashing plates started out as a kind of therapy for me when I lost my Mom. Something about the process of putting the broken pieces back together really captured me. Little did I know how metaphorical that would become later in my life. As I picked up the pieces after a difficult divorce my alter ego, "Smashgirl" emerged. My life has been adventurous ever since and led me to Hollywood. It's been a thrill to see my Smashgirl pendants make their way down the red carpet and onto tv shows. I now live in my dream loft in downtown Phoenix, AZ with my constant furry companions, Lucy and Lily.
