Jersey Tomato Moves to Maine
Play was encouraged, and I never stopped. I make jewelry with a past, the way I see surroundings. It could be insects and other inhabitants of nature, house objects, earrings in abstract shapes. I like making jewelry that is different and then find the perfect customer for it, someone looking to stand out in a crowd, and not afraid to show it.
I have been making jewelry forever, over 40 years. Began on a whim and here I am.
A bit over 20 years ago, I traded the craziness of a big city for the tranquility of a smaller city, Portland, ME, with beautiful views right out my windows. Every summer I take trip to see friends DownEast, drive for hours and I'm still in Maine.
Insects: I always liked them, growing up on a farm and finding them under rocks, especially the big mica-studded rock at the corner of the barn. I collected them, I labeled them and was most fascinated by beetles; they are little sturdy machines, each with a definite purpose and a job to do.
House items: in cleaning out my family house, I sorted through appliances I had grown up with. This inspired the Toaster Pin and Utensil Necklace and Earrings, Garden Jewelry and Tea and Coffee Pins.
Abstract earrings: These are shapes I find go together and which play off each other to become small sculptures that hang from the ears, reflecting the movement of the wearer.
Play was encouraged, and I never stopped.
