Absolutely stellar! The quality on this is out of this world, truly precise and with careful attention toward the little details that matter. It was also created and shipped faster than I had hoped. Thank you!

About

First there was jewelry

I started making jewelry back in the 1990s, and then I discovered and fell in love with binding books.

In 2001 I started an art tool and supply company called Volcano Arts. http://www.volcanoarts.com (metalsmithing, bookbinding and stained glass).

Now I combine my passions and make pieces using skills in several crafts, my true love being contemporary books with metal hardware. I tend to use silver, glass, exotic woods and other materials that are flexible to an artist's vision.

Though I had started my Etsy shop several months ago, I hadn't used it for sharing my art. I started selling here officially in May of 2012 and find that I'm enjoying the experience and "meeting" so many people!

I hope you enjoy my work and let me know your thoughts about it.

    I've been making art of one kind or another all of my life. My passions are metalsmithing and bookbinding, and especially mixing the two. I have a contemporary aesthetic, but my art is informed by my studies of ancient history.

Warmest welcome! I've been a professional artist and teacher since the late '80s and still consider it a dream job. With my Etsy shop I can share that dream with you. Please enjoy my original, handmade pieces.
