About

I have been making jewelry since I was old enough to put beads on a string. I love beads. They're everywhere in my house. In boxes, in drawers, on shelves, in my husband's shoes, in the vacuum cleaner..wherever a bead could possibly go. Which if you've ever worked with beads, you know that they go wherever they please.

I live in a rural part of Kentucky with my husband, Adam. I am half Turkish-Cypriot, upon which I blame my love affair with copper and my general obsession with ancient history. I have a full time job at a University.

My work is heavily influenced by fairy tales, mythology, history, and nature. I love working with vivid colors and interesting textures. I work mainly in silver and copper. Etching copper is my latest favorite, since it allows me to put even more of myself into my jewelry…

In addition to my jewelry making, I enjoy painting, sketching in charcoal, and writing. I am also an avid fossil and rock collector. If it's an interesting rock, it's probably in my house or on my porch.

If you'd like to follow my blog, it's a good way to keep up on what's going to be coming to my etsy store. I am also on twitter, under the user name SerpentsDance.

I am part of the FAEteam on etsy, a collective of wonderful fantasy artists!
