Born and raised in New England, I later moved to Washington D.C. where I received a B.A. in Fine Arts from American University in . I focused on the art of silk screen printing - a challenging craft that involves intricate layering of separately-printed and colored design elements.

Years later, this ability to layer colors and combine textures in unique ways became instrumental when in 1982, I began designing beaded necklaces and then 10 years later , recycled circuit board jewelry.

In 1992 I launched THREE RING CIRCUITS (3RC), a jewelry and accessory line of Recycled Circuit Board "geekery" products that use recycled PCBs (printed circuit boards) and "found objects".

My recycled circuit board jewelry and home and office products -clipboards, key chains, magnets, bookmarks, picture frames,sun catchers and clocks are definitely conversation makers!
THREE RING CIRCUITS (3RC) has been featured in museum shops, including those at the Smithsonian Institution Air and Space Museum and the Boston Computer museum, as well as many galleries and boutiques across the U.S. and Canada that sell fashion accessories. This line is also now being sold in Europe with great success!

I've been very fortunate to travel with my husband to the Far East, Middle East, Africa and Europe where I've acquired an enormous palette of beads and findings,which have allowed me to create a huge and diverse catalog of unique handmade jewelry - both beaded and with circuit boards. Sometimes the 2 very distinct jewelry lines merge.

The beaded designs, created with many hundreds of different components at my fingertips, include many one-of-a-kind antique Chinese pieces from the Ch'ing and Ming Dynasty . Other components that I may use include carved gemstone beads (many of which are no longer even available), Japanese glass beads, antique silver, coral, and pre-ban ivory from the late 1970' . All of my beaded necklaces, like fine pearls, are hand knotted to preserve their integrity.

The BEADLES line has been featured in Bloomingdale's, Garfinkle's, Saks Fifth Avenue, the Smithsonian's mail order catalogs and museum shops, the Chicago Art Institute's museum shop and mail order catalog, the Seattle Museum of Fine Art, the Smithsonian's Air & Space Museum and Sackler Gallery, and many boutiques and galleries.
My jewelry has been featured in the Washington Post, Baltimore Magazine and in TV interviews.
