Stunning ring, expertly crafted to my exact size specifications. I was worried that the ring wouldn't fit but it was perfect and even more beautiful in person. I would not hesitate to buy from this talented artist again!

The picture doesn't even show how beautiful the colors are in the earrings! These are a gift for a friend who loves bats and custom ordered the size. Nancy is very talented and for custom order quick to get and met for pick up, so no shipping charge. I was so pleased and so easy to order and Nancy is a fabulous artist!!! In addition she wrapped what a nice surprise! Support local artist you won't be disappointed!!

A New Form Emerging From The Old...

Something was missing in my life. So I took some time to take a look... and I realized it had been a long time since I created art. I had created a beautiful home, children, gardens and life, but the process of creating art was missing. So I decided to make a change. I stepped down from my position at work and I took a chance. I returned to school to explore how to make the pictures that were in my head.

I found in creating jewelry I was able bring those pictures in my head into reality. I love to take a piece of flat smooth metal and reshape it, add textures, colors, and patterns, put it together with a shell or stone and make them tell a story. Telling a story, evoking a memory of time passed, something maybe forgotten and now remembered.

Through my creations I have found a way to reveal the complexities of me. A new form emerging from the old... present, changed, evolving...
