Welcome graphic


A few years ago, I began designing and creating one of a kind handmade jewelry pieces: earrings, necklaces and bracelets.  My inspiration comes from the earth, sky, and ocean primarily in shades of greens, browns and blues.  As in nature, I incorporate some sparkle, like a raindrop reflecting the light on a leaf after a brief shower.  

I start the designing process by thinking of a place I have been or something I have seen, drawing on the colors that I noticed.  I then select the materials that express the concept in my mind.  

To bring my inspiration to “life,” I enjoy working primarily with natural materials, using semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls and clay beads that I make by hand. I often incorporate glass or crystal beads, as well.  Antiqued copper or brass findings work well with the colors and shades of materials.   “Recycling” or “reclaiming” beads and findings is also a valuable resource that I draw upon.   

 In April 2010, I became a juried artist for the Prairie Art Alliance in Springfield, Illinois.
