I’ve sold my work at craft shows and in galleries across Vermont and been included in exhibits in the US, UK and Japan. My work has been featured in top jewelry magazines and several books; and made the cover of the Lark book "Stitched Jewels".

I love what I do and feel very lucky to being doing it!*The JK symbol that I use is not only my initials, it is also the Chinese symbol for "Forever".
