I have always loved making jewelry, especially earrings, and started making them just to satisfy own needs. There is a joy when a little sculpture hangs from your ear and give you bursts of color, shows your artistic tastes or simply matches your favorite shirt. While I have a background in metalsmithing and have mostly worked with wire I am currently obsessed with beads. Beads are a fantastic way to express beauty with color and light and basic shapes. I enjoy simplicity and seek to make very practical, wearable, affordable jewelry that has an artistic edge. Each piece I make can stand alone, but is also part of a bigger vision that is clear when all of my work sits together.
