About

Metal smithing and Jewelry Chose Me

“Rest not! Life is sweeping by; go and dare before you die.
Something mighty and sublime, leave behind to conquer time.” -- Goethe

My jewelry process is spiritual in nature, inspired by two dear friends who spent the last five years of their young lives building legacies that touched countless others in meaningful ways. Their legacies compel me to create.

In metalworking, I am combining my artistic skills with a deep spiritual satisfaction of working with the earth’s materials to create something that, on some level, touches another person.

I prefer working with sterling silver, copper and gold, both for the richness of their colors and individual working properties. Employing traditional hot and cold fabrication methods I marry metals, stones and found objects into my designs and incorporate various surface textures in my work - anything that moves metal in a pleasing way, creating depth and complexity. I’m drawn to movement, reverence and a sense of whimsy.

Trained originally in nursing and later in horticulture and garden design, at my life’s mid-century mark, I learned basic metal smithing at a small jewelry studio. I bought a torch, set up a home studio and began hammering, sawing, soldering and selling. I’ve attended various classes at Penland School of Crafts, John C. Campbell Folk School and other, smaller venues. I’ve learned from several excellent teachers, including Ben Dyer, Bob Ebendorf, James Myer, Tim McCreight and the late DX Ross.

I have been making and selling my work since 2005 and I continue to expand my skills through intentional learning experiences as time and funds allow. Who knew learning could be this much fun?!

My home (brick and mortar) store is Flow Gallery in historic Marshall, NC. The gallery is located at 14 S. Main Street, on the banks of the French Broad River in the western North Carolina mountains, just 20 minutes north of Asheville.

I co-own Flow Gallery with 4 wonderfully talented and cooperative artists, whose joint goal is to provide a beautiful and well respected venue to promote local, high quality craft. It's a win/win situation for all of us: selling our own work; meeting and greeting the public by working the shop once a week; finding new, exciting talent to showcase in our store; and working cooperatively with other artists. Come and visit!
