I have been creating jewelry for 20 years. I have been striving to improve my skills and exploring new techniques. My work includes stringing, wire wrapping, metalsmithing and Precious Metal Clay work. I look forward to learning more about the lapidary arts as well as enhancing my metalsmithing skills.

I love the creative process. My wheels are always spinning about new ideas and techniques to try; it is the engine that keeps me going and nature is my muse.
