She continues her father’s work making beautiful, one of a kind jewelry using semi-precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, Thai Silver, Bali silver, sterling silver, and 14k gold filled metals; Swarvoksi, Czech, Austrian and Chinese crystals. She loves to use turquoise, carnelian and freshwater pearls in her innovative designs. Whether the jewelry is religious in nature and celebrates the beauty of nature, her designs vary from chunky to delicate, but are always very colorful and energetic pieces.

Her creations are sold at Dallas area boutiques and Episcopal church bookstores. Several times a year, she has private trunk shows for her Dallas clientele. She has taught beginning jewelry making to children at Joann’s Kids Camp, and teaches privately to adults in her workshop.

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7-24
