I MAKE UNCOMMON, NONTRADITIONAL AND FUNKY ART JEWELRY FROM RECYCLED MATERIALS, GEMS AND BEADS. MOST OF IT IS QUIRKY, CROOKED, UNIQUE AND UNMATCHED. MAKING JEWELRY IS A WAY TO USE ALL MY FOUND OBJECTS AND TREASURES. I USE LOTS OF PRECIOUS STONES AND MINERALS, AND I LOVE USING THE THINGS I FIND IN UNEXPECTED WAYS. ART JEWELRY LIKE I MAKE HAS A LONG TRADITION IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, WHERE I WAS RAISED.

MY JEWELRY FEATURES PRECIOUS AND HEALING STONES, ETHNIC BEADS AND FOUND AND RECYCLED OBJECTS COLLECTED ON MY WORLDWIDE TRAVELS.

I STARTED THIS CENTURY WITH A SOLO ROUND THE WORLD VOYAGE IN 2000, SPENDING 6 MONTHS IN ASIA AND INDIA, AND ENDING UP IN EUROPE AND GREAT BRITAIN. WHEN I RETURNED IN LATE 2000, I BECAME TRAVELINGSAVAGE.

SINCE THAT TIME I HAVE TRAVELED REGULARLY, COLLECTING TREASURES ALONG THE WAY. I COLLECTED GEMS IN BRAZIL IN AUGUST 2006 AND 2008, AND TOOK A JEWELRY MAKING CLASS IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE LAST JUNE. IN FEBRUARY 2010 I TRAVELED TO SRI LANKA AND SOUTH INDIA. I CRUISED ROUND THE HORN OF SOUTH AMERICA FROM RIO DE JANEIRO TO SANTIAGO CHILE IN LATE 2010, AND RETURNED WITH MANY FABULOUS TREASURES.

IN OCTOBER OF 2012 I VISITED MYANMAR( BURMA) , A PLACE I HAVE DREAMED OF FOR MANY YEARS. THE TEMPLES, PAGODAS AND LOVELY PEOPLE INSPIRED MANY PIECES OF JEWELRY.

MAY MY WORK BRING YOU A SENSE OF ADVENTURE AND ENRICH YOUR LIFE AS MY TRAVELS HAVE ENRICHED MINE.

THANKS FOR LOOKING, AND LIST ME AS A FAVORITE IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE.
