About

Classic yet modern Blessed Mother jewelry pieces!

I am very blessed to be a mother and I love staying at home to take care of my children, but I enjoy being creative. 
I began designing jewelry using natural stones and freshwater pearls to create unique beaded jewelry. After a few years and several craft shows later, I learned about PMC, which stands for Precious Metal Clay. It was a fairly new concept and an easy and inexpensive way to create jewelry using sterling silver. After my first lesson on how to work with PMC, I fell in love. Within a few months of working with PMC, I signed up to take a traditional metalsmithing class with our local Art League. There, I met a truly wonderful friend who is an amazing jewelry artist and encouraging teacher! She wanted to learn about PMC and so we traveled out of state to take a PMC certification class with a renowned metalsmithing author and teacher, Tim McCreight. It was an extraordinary experience being able to learn from the man that has authored the most well-known and used textbooks for metalsmithing. He is humble and kind as well as an artistically gifted.

    I am a work in progress. . . a child of God. . . a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. My Catholic faith is precious to me and without it, I would not know how to navigate this world or how to get to the next.
