About

From Painting To Making Jewelry

As an artist I have always worked with high quality paper - artists and watercolor papers, papers used for fine art prints and papers used for displays. And I would always have pieces left over. I hesitate to call these left over pieces “scraps” because they are really quite beautiful forms of paper - archival, acid free, cotton rag and other fibers, some handmade papers - beautiful even in their natural, unpainted or uncolored state.

In the interest of being ecologically friendly I started experimenting with paper. Paper has been used in jewelry for over 2000 years. So it’s not a new idea, just a new look. There’s no end to it’s shapes and colors and it’s very lightweight. If you are afraid to wear big bold earrings because of the weight - think paper. It’s light as a feather. And all my paper pieces are sealed to make them water resistant (not water proof). With a little care paper jewelry will last for many, many years.

I hand paint and draw my own designs onto these various forms of paper. Then I combine this artwork with diverse materials including metal, wood, glass and crystal beads. When I have recyclable materials such as old or broken jewelry or buttons I like to include them whenever possible. I create each piece of jewelry myself with an eye for color, shape and texture.

By carefully mixing colors, shapes and textures, I try to create distinctive and unique jewelry. Although some pieces may look similar, no two pieces are exactly alike. My jewelry is not mass produced. Each piece is a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art.

If you need more information, please just send me a note.

Thank you for stopping by my gallery. Please come back.

    I consider myself to be a "self taught" artist. I have always experimented in the arts from drawing on the walls as a child to my latest experiments with acrylic painting and unique jewelry made from paper or clay.
