is our passion

Recently, I moved my studio to a new location where I have been able to grow.  The jewelry I make has been a progression of interests and skill that started when I took a high school jewelry class.  I have since received a BFA and MA, work jeweler, teach art, and diligently work on improving my metalsmithing skills.  I enjoy working with clients to make jewelry that is sophisticated, meaningful, and beautiful.  




I try to maintain “green” environment.  I do so by working with conscientious suppliers of metals and stones, recycling scrap metals, and minimizing use of hazardous chemicals and cleaners.    I have two children that frequently come to work with me, and I try to maintain a safe environment for all of us.

In my current location, I not only sell my jewelry, but also have a great collection of fine crafts by other artists.  Lucky Kim makes wonderful cards, silhouettes, and felt ornaments inspired by her native Korea, European traditions and Waldorf style.  Adama Sow makes brightly glazed ceramics that are attractive and functional.  Steve Aitchison's pots have a surface treatment that has impressions of leaves from the garden.  Norma Wolff's miniature cat portraits capture the nature of cats.
