About

I retired as a Nurse Practitioner and took two silversmithing classes about 9 years ago. I worked in silver for a while until the price of silver went too high for me and then I started doing bead embroidery. I explored the color combinations of glass seed beads, but felt that something was lacking. What I have always wanted to learn was enameling on precious metal so now I have purchased a kiln and some glass enamel and have taught myself to enamel on fine silver and sterling silver. I especially love the challenge of Champleve and Plique a Jour enameling.

I am having a ball and hope that you enjoy my work.

Thanks for visiting my store!
