In the late 80's I entered back into the jewelry business for several years working to help create fine jewelry and in sales for a small up-scale store in Sacramento - I also was invited to teach Design for the California Institute of Jewelry Training. I now teach Jewelry Design and Rendering, as well as Metal Clay classes at the jewelry school a few times a year. The rest of my time is spent collecting vintage jewelry for customers, creating custom wedding sets and creating my own line of jewelry.

I hope you will enjoy my nature inspired jewelry as much as I have enjoyed creating them for you.
