About Me

My own original style, with an emphasis on weaving. My woven bracelets are special and totally my own.
Always looking for new ways to express my creativity, I’ve studied a wide range of jewelry subjects throughout the country. Taken courses through Arrowmount, the Midwest Federation, Metalsmithing Society in Illinois, the Gemological Institute (GIA) Indianapolis Art Center, The William Holland School of Lapidary Arts and I’ve taught and taken classes at (SFMS) Wildacres Retreat in North Carolina.

I’ve taught classes both locally and around the country in variety of Jewelry skills, including wire wrapping and weaving, metalsmith and glass fusing. I also have a (PMC) Precious Metal Clay and Art Clay certified teacher.

From wire wrapping to goldsmithing, I’ve possessed a wonderful blend of creativity and curiosity. My work has been seen in several publications, including The Wire Artist Jeweller magazine, in which I was the featured artist of the month (November, 1999). My work has also been included in the published book, “All Wire Up” by Mark Lareau. Co-Author and jewelry Artist of “Woven Wire Jewelry”, “Getting Started Making Jewelry” and “Wire Wrapping”. I also have a degree in computer graphics.

On a personal note:
In growing up in a small town and was an only child I had a hard time finding my way and never learned any social skills. My time was spent working with my hands and then eventually creating doodads. I first became good at drawing and painting, then anything that would produce something in an unnecessarily elaborate or complicated way. I mastered several skills thru the years and making jewelry interested me for the duration. I believe the interest was never-ending, always new technics to learn. Each more challenging than before. Taking that skill set into my own direction and style.
Of course I’m still learning.
