The 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.
