I am an artist working on a very small scale with precious materials used to create personal works of art. My art jewelry is sculptural, clean, and has an Asian influence resulting from artwork my parents had in our home when I was growing up. (Not the typical Midwestern household).
I work in Argentium Silver and heat colored Titanium to create Art Jewelry using traditional fabrication metalsmithing techniques. Basically, I saw, texture, hammer, and form the metal with hand tools. The directness of forging metal in this manner make each piece of art jewelry unique.
My husband, Gordon and I live in Texas with our border collie, Xena. We have four sons, two grandsons and two granddaughters.
