The jewelry I create is inspired by nature and art. My many years walking the shores of Jones Beach on Long Island, my college years hiking and skiing the mountains of Vermont and the more recent vacation times in the Adirondacks all provide inspiration when I am in my studio.
My enjoyment of art, particularly the Impressionists, with their use of color and light also provides additional background for creativity when I sit down to create a new piece. Whenever we travel, searching for new beads is always on the "to do" list. I've collected beads from Toronto to Vienna and they have all found a home in my creations.
The rich earthtone colors in semi-precious stones such as jaspers and agates and the cool blue of lapis lazuli remind me of favorite gardens, woodlands, mountains, surf, or my memories of a gallery painting…
