I have been making jewelry for over twenty years.  I began working in sterling silver.  When I was working on a special project I wandered into a bead store to find something to help finish this piece.  I saw the beads and fell in love with beadwork. 



Over the years I have taken several classes and have developed my own style and stitch.  I use a freestyle peyote stitch and incorporate precious metals, crystals, gemstones and vintage found objects into my jewelry.  All of my life I have felt the need to create and live artfully, from the way I prepare meals to how I decorate my home, to ultimately becoming an artist.  I hope you enjoy my work as much as I have enjoyed making it.
