Diane Markin lives in sunny California with her husband, three cats, fifteen turtles and various lizards and frogs. She is thrilled to have found a way of life which suits her so perfectly. She is able to indulge her obsession with glass and beads and wire, her mind whirling with new ideas. She loves her talented and devoted crew and together they have lots of fun making all kinds of cool stuff. She couldn't wish for anything more.
