Since I was a child I have loved searching outside for pretty rocks. I watched my father, Orvil Wardle, do lapidary work while I was growing up in Utah where we have plenty of beautiful stones to discover. My grandfather was a geogolist. I love lapidary work and silversmithing. I have had the privilege of being taught by great masters who were also taught by excellent instructors.
My jewelry has been shown in galleries in SoHo,New York, Park City and SnowBird, Utah boutiques as well as the St. George Art Museum and Main Street Gallery.
I am a retired dance team owner/instructor, I traveled with my students ages 5 to 85 throughout the world for 27 years. I enjoy humanitarian work and learning about other cultures. I have lived in China, volunteered in Haiti, spent a lot of time in Japan, traveled to Thailand, New Zealand, Australia, Fiji…
