I'm a little bit shy about putting pictures of myself on here, so here's a picture of my daughter-in-law's alpaca who was hiding from her. I feel the same way when anyone gets out a camera.
Looking for a creative outlet after I left the corporate world of marketing and advertising, I began making jewelry around 2005, stringing beautiful semi-precious stones into necklaces and bracelets. After a couple of years, I began taking metalsmithing and jewelry-making classes to add visual interest to my pieces. Always wanting to learn new things, I continue to expand my skills through the generous teachers online and in person who have dedicated themselves to helping others learn to make jewelry.
I work primarily with sterling silver and semi-precious stones, and I handcraft each piece in my one-person studio.
