About

It's all about beads.

I specialize in creating distinctive, one-of-a-kind and limited edition flame worked beads and beaded jewelry.

It is always a goal of mine to learn new techniques and improve my skills as an artisan. I am fascinated with handmade flame worked beads and began my own journey exploring this intriguing art form in 2003. In 2011 I began exploring and incorporating metal work into my jewelry and my beads using silver/argentium, copper and/or brass. In 2012 I discovered color reactions in glass and continue to explore and create unique bold, colorful glass beads. I'm also pleased to be able to offer these glass beads for sale for personal collections or artisan jewelry design.

I am inspired by many things: other artists, other cultures (currently fascinated with Maori tatoos), the desert I currently live in. My work can range from a traditional, classic look to a primitive tribal look. The process of creating begins for me by thinking about what types of stones or flame work beads I want to put together. Color, shape and texture play a roll in each of my compositions. Each bead is carefully selected and examined for quality and shape.

I have a background in art and design and graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor's in Graphic Design. I currently work full time as a graphic designer and lampwork and create jewelry part time.

My jewelry creations can be found in several private collections around the United States, Canada, Europe, New Zealand and Australia. My tutorials have been downloaded all over the world.
