I am a jewelry artist who designs and creates jewelry that is colorful, fun, and easy to wear.
I fabricate sterling silver wire (gauge 10-30) and sheet (gauge 18-28) into jewelry components, including bezel pendants, end pieces, findings, and connections.
This allows me to incorporate gemstones and pearls into wearable art – necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.
I also design and create 1, 3, and 5 wrap bracelets, using weaving and knotting techniques practiced globally to bring together 1.0 mm leather cord, gemstones, pearls, and seed beads.
I continue to develop my skills and broaden my design concepts through instruction taken at regional metal design studios and self-study. The results allow me to create a variety of wearable art. This is a lot of fun!
There are so many colors, textures, and shapes of gemstones and pearls. I gravitate to earth tones if I can work the colors into the design. It's just a matter of finding the combination that completes the design concept.
