Botanica Bead & Jewelry

 

I have always felt a need to make things. As a trained Horticulturist I am crazy about plants and as a jewelry artist much of my work centers around plant forms translated through various metals and glass. From my studio here at 320 Studios, I create traditional metalwork and work with an exciting and relatively new material, Metal Clay. I play with glass as enamel and fused and dabble with pastels.
