About

I create palettes of color to inspire the creative design process...

My art classes over the years developed a passion for color and design; while my indulgence in crafts developed my ability to conceptualize and create art. When my aunt introduced me to beading and jewelry design, this allowed me to merge both worlds of experience as an artist. I discover inspiration from the outdoors in nature and architecture; the color combinations naturally occurring in the world around us and the visible textures of the building structures, roads and pathways in our environment. Now, where did the passion for beads emerge…? As I reflect on this question, I am reminded of a vintage shop in New York City that I discovered when I was in college… An older gentleman who had immigrated from Europe probably in the 1920’s or 1930’s owned this fantastic shop filled with wonderful vintage beads, crystals, metals, findings, resin and lucite… The store, which was in business for more than 60 years, was one of the oldest bead shops in New York’s garment district. I was totally enamored by all the treasures within my reach for creating jewelry! My connection to beading and jewelry design was almost instant as the shop owner became my mentor. For me, the design process always begins with the beads... So this is my path and passion into beading and jewelry design.
