passion of creating my jewelry literally happened by accident ten
years ago, when a friend asked me to take a class at one of the local
hobby shops. The momentum ignited to learn as much as I could from
beading to metal-work. Using my hands to create a piece from nothing
is just short of amazing. My love of colors can be seen in most of
my work from copper metals, to enamels and now to Prismacolor Pencil
pieces. I incorporate a variety of materials in my art such as sheet
metal, beach glass, gemstones and wire. My jewelry displays more of
an eclectic style from Boho Chic to Contemporary works.
