I have always loved and appreciated artwork of every medium, but only later in life realized that I could try doing it myself after many years as a research scientist. I love color and am inspired by colors in the natural world, paintings, beautiful fabrics, and my trusty color wheel. My goal is to create versatile and elegant pieces of jewelry that will stand the test of time. I select high quality materials such as Venetian glass, semi-precious gemstones, unique lampwork beads, pearls, crystals, sterling silver, and 14K gold-filled findings. Many of my necklaces and pendants are created with wire-wrapped links, chain, and handmade hammered sterling silver and gold-filled metal components.
I enjoy helping customers select pieces of jewelry that will add sparkle to a simple everyday outfit or glamour for that special occasion. What is most rewarding is hearing that my jewelry is one of their favorite pieces and the first one they choose when they open their jewelry box.
