About

In concert with earth & spirit ...

Images come, shapes flow, clay is rolled, pinched and poked, nudged and smeared, textures emerge, form follows function, the simplest answer is usually the best answer, scanning bins for bits and bobs, sparkly or matte, stack or layer, solder or wrap, drill and sand and file, long or not so long, plain for forged, shiny or satin ...

... composition is improvisation, intuitive, spirit guided

... comfort and practicality, no snaggy bits, clasps function as conceived, not too heavy and weighted evenly

Above all else ... effortless, empowering, graceful, beautiful, heartwarming and smile inducing.

I started making jewelry in 1994. I'm primarily self-taught via lots of how-to books and seem to have an innate gift for design and composition. My medium of choice is Precious Metal Clay (PMC) - precious or base metal powders in a clay-like base. I began working with the original fine silver PMC in 1998 and it was love at first touch. My favorite thing about metal clay is how I can form each component by hand, pinching and nudging shapes and smearing edges. My fingerprints are visible in each piece, quite literally, the hand of the maker.
