I have been a maker most of my life, it seems like I was always searching for my passion. I love working with unusual and beautiful stones and these are often the inspiration for a piece. I am primarily self-taught but have been fortunate to study with some master jeweler's.
After a career as a hairstylist for 32 years I began looking for another avenue for my creativity.
My career as a jeweler began in 1994 after visiting a friend who was a jeweler and realizing that this
was what I really wanted to do! I'm a people person and fine arts festivals were a perfect fit for me. Jewelry is very personal and I love making a connection with the people who collect my work.
I love making jewelry, but seeing the joy on someone's face when they find a piece is priceless!
