But the love of beads and jewelry won out and I now design one-of- a-kind & limited edition jewelry couture. My work is carried by art galleries and has sold in France and Japan.

My favorite style is the asymmetrical look, especially "shoulder duster " earrings.(I was influenced in that direction by Christian La Croix's line of jewelry used in his early '90's collections in which he used the asymmetrical look )You have a look one way and when you turn your head,voila, another look! The design is related by the materials and colors used. That is all you need! Long, lovely, dainty shoulder jewels that brush your shoulders. Of course i love it all and will be showing a variety of styles and necklaces too!

I use a variety of materials: handmade American Artisan lampwork beads, vintage and contemporary jewelry pieces, Swarovski Crystals, Cubic Zirconia, Gem stones, resin & acrylic beads, vermeil, sterling & pewter findings.I also hand paint some of the findings i use in my designs. Any and everything necessary to complete the look! These designs are not mass-produced but made individually by me as I am so durn fussy and obsessive that it's just easier to design and make them myself than trying to tell someone what i want.

I welcome all queries of an artistic & financial nature!!
