Modern Life

cranach_konstancia_snap_art_crazing_by_worldsedge-d7sg58vRachel Ost lives in Kansas City, Missouri, and happens to date a rather dashing Newfoundlander.  She studied history at Northwest Missouri State University, and occasionally creates magic and mayhem in Photoshop.  Her areas of interest outside the SCA include jewellery, geography, and reading.

She also enjoys travelling, long walks on rocky shores, and playing with fire and power tools, though usually not at the same time.

Her jewellery can be purchased at belletoile.etsy.com
