About Me

As a jewelry artist for the past 19 years and a graphic designer for over 25 years, I have been inspired to create jewelry influenced by the clean lines of graphic design and the limitless possibilities of gems, sterling silver, leather and clay.


Recently, I have been learning many new techniques. I have been enjoying metalsmithing, using art glass and fine silver to create hammered bezels. I am also expanding my repetoire to include silver fusing, tube setting, riveting, soldering and chainmaille. In the meantime, I continue to design new pieces with resin, polymer clay and leather, combining vintage finds with upcycled materials.


I specialize in creating custom jewelry. I can design a piece in your favorite style and color for everyday, or a unique piece for a special occasion. I can also add a personal object or family photo to my designs.


All of my pieces are handmade with sterling silver or gold fill findings. I use a only high-quality materials, including Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, turquoise, coral, vintage glass, pearls, gold and silver vermeil, and lampwork glass.
