The last few years have seen my jewelry work grow from developing my skills using learned techniques to stretching into the designing world. There are so many things that inspire my designs. My young daughter has inspired several delicate designs that are fit for even the finest young lady. My fellow military spouses have inspired many of my military themed jewelry using uniform buttons. God's creation around me constantly inspires my color choices and design techniques.
