I make jewelry using semi-precious stones. I have been collecting and hand picking stones for over thirty years. I use the basic metalsmithing techniques to fabricate my jewelry.....sawing, forging, milling, forming, bezel setting, and hours of soldering and finishing. I like to incorporate different finishes, I like the look of oxidized finishes and use keum-bo and gold paint on my fine silver pieces. I primarily use sterling silver as my metal choice. I use stones, pearls, rough crystals and minerals in my pieces and sometimes I use enamel.
I like designs that are sometimes edgy, organic ...feminine.
I love making these pieces and hope that is reflected in the finished piece.
I have done many shows, been in galleries and had my own gallery in Buffalo ,N.Y
I have pieces in the permanent collection of the Burchfield Penny Museum in Buffalo, N.Y . I have a home studio where I make and sell my jewelry.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
I will reserve for two weeks but please be certain you want it.
I usually can't duplicate sold items because I can't duplicate stones. You may ask..... but it never looks exactly like the sold item which may cause disappointment!
The best way to insure a good bracelet fit is to measure your wrist, not the bracelet, and e-mail me your size with the order.
I don't enjoy making special order pieces...it's hard to say no...... I made this decision over thirty years ago and truly believe that it why I am still happily and lovingly creating jewelry.
