A little bit about me…..
My mother was a metal smith and I grew up around jewelry. I have been making things as long as I can remember. Simple bead stringing at first and then whatever process or material I could put my hands on. In college I chose to get a degree in sculpture instead of jewelry. I shifted my focus dramatically and found some insight into myself and my art that allowed me expand substantially.
While I was working with art I started to wonder why I love jewelry. I think I am attracted to the intimacy that we have with jewelry, it touches our skin, and is a part of who we are for a time. It effects how people perceive us and communicates to others our style and interests. Art work is intimate with the artist, where jewelry as a functional art is more intimate with the owner…
