I have been fascinated with jewelry since I was a small child. I perfected friendship bracelets, and the first bead shop I entered became my mecca. Over the years I have developed my skills from just putting things together, to creating all of the components in my design. I have always been fascinated with stones, crystals and metal. I create jewelry with a rustic chic style. I use local stones whenever possible to dress them up in silver, copper, brass, and leather. I utilize many different techniques; including metalsmith, lapidary, wire weaving and chain-mail, I am always curious and up for a challenge.
