I have been in love with the arts my whole life. I dabbled in sketching, painting, sculpting and pottery throughout my school years. Several years ago, I was introduced to metal clay silver and a love affair was born.

Metal clay is versatile, Eco friendly recycled silver, recovered from the photo process. Mixed with an organic binder to form a clay, this unique material can be sculpted, carved, sanded, molded to just about anything you can imagine.

Each of my designs begins with a picture in my mind which I first sketch out on paper. If I am lucky, the finished product looks better than I could have imagined it. Some of my pieces are then cast from the originals so I can more easily share these designs. All pieces are finished by hand and made in the USA.

I believe that every woman deserves a quality piece of jewelry that inspires them!
