About

The design process for me is always an adventure since you never know exactly what the piece will evolve into. Many times I will have design in my head when I start a piece and it will change dramatically by the time it is finished. When I work with stones and metal sometimes I will look at a stone for weeks or months, waiting for it to tell me what it wants to be. That Aha! moment when I know what a piece should look like is always exciting for me. Many of my pieces have most of the components made by me. I do lapidary (rocks), I make the lampwork beads, I do all of the metal smithing myself. I love what I do and couldn't stop creating if I wanted to.
