As a jeweler and writer, following artistic pursuits are not an option in my life. I wake up in the morning envisioning a fresh design or story and cannot wait to get into my studio in the Valley of the Moon. Rarely are any two jewelry pieces alike, consequently each piece is unique. I enjoy working with semi-precious and precious gemstones and pearls, sterling silver, Bali silver, fine silver, gold fill and occasionally 14k gold. My specialty is work with precious metal clay. The malleable and pliant form of precious metal clay prior to firing, allows for infinite versatility in the creation of individual art jewelry pieces.
