Art You Can Wear
Handmade jewelry reflects the unique person you are.
My custom jewelry designs are created JUST FOR YOU and no two pieces are alike.
I’m originally from the east coast and I grew up visiting craft centers in the Virginia and West Virginia mountains. I was entranced with the jewelry and art I saw. I always loved working with my hands and I really enjoy the process of designing and creating jewelry.
I moved to New Mexico because this part of the country is the most deeply inspiring place I’ve ever been. I love the colors in the landscape and the every changing clouds in the sky. I want my jewelry to communicate my excitement and enthusiasm for New Mexico.
I work primarily in silver - sometimes in copper. I make the components of my pieces by hand to create the overall design. Texture is a fundamental part of many of my designs and I incorporate patterns and shapes from nature in many of my pieces.
My formal education is in chemistry. I didn’t become really involved in making jewelry until I was out of college and working. I started with some silver smithing classes and since then I’ve pursued a continuing course of jewelry related classes.
New Mexico artists are amazing!
