I've spent many years making art and involved in creative endeavors --- I love working with my hands and the physical nature of handwork.
For me, designing and making jewelry is a satisfying antidote to mass produced items and over abundance in our society. Working on a small scale with my own two hands, creating fine enduring pieces of quality and excellent craftsmanship is what keeps me inspired and engaged. Making small works of art for people to wear on their bodies, the ultimate form of intimacy-- is the most satisfying aspect of the whole endeavor. It's always my hope that my pieces will have lasting meaning and become keepsakes worthy of passing along from one generation to the next.
I'm also a vintage lover and collector and especially drawn to time worn objects from the 1800s and early 1900s-- but love pieces from almost every decade. I have 2 vintage shops…
