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, Cash and Lily.
