I fell in love with the art of making glass beads (lampworking) in 2002, moving from creating round beads to more sculptural animal and flower beads.
In 2009, I felt the need to make more personal, meaningful jewelry. I love words and their ability to elicit emotions, so I learned to hand stamp words onto metal. Most of my designs incorporate my glass beads and word(s) stamped in metal. New ideas come to me all the time, frequently and unbidden, when I'm driving, working, going to sleep. That's how I know this is what I was meant to do. Plus, I simply love it.
