I am a self taught metal and fabric artist. I love to expand my jewelry designing abilities and enjoy taking silver smithing, metal clay and wire wrapping courses so my work is constantly evolving. I use a variety of wire and texturing techniques to keep my designs unique, fresh and exciting.
My favorite materials to work with are heavy gauge Sterling Silver and Copper wire. I hand shape and hammer each one of my designs and love to let the metal tell me a story as it takes shape. I try and find unique and unusual natural stones of the best quality to compliment each design.
I antique or oxidize most of my pieces to give it a warm, rustic time worn appearance. For a long lasting finish I apply a tarnish inhibitor on the center focal pieces of my necklaces and bracelets.
Each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind. If you see something that you like and want to turn it into something that you will love, please contact me so you can share your ideas with me.
I hope you enjoy my jewelry as much as I have enjoyed creating it!
