In a life full of constant change and moving like a gypsy, creating became as necessary as breathing. I have always been an artist. Growing up, I would experiment with a variety of mediums, charcoals, clay, wood shop, metal shop, always trying new things. Enjoying the process and seeing what I could do. My love affair with Jewelry started small. I needed something red. And we all know how elusive pretty red jewelry can be. I found a few things, from a department store, and set about repurposing them. In the early days, I absorbed techniques like a sponge, trying and discarding most. Eventually I worked up the courage to try a torch. Costume jewelry is where I honed my torch skills and felt as if I had found my calling. But Sterling, Sterling is where I found magic.
Find me on, most any social media to see what I am currently working on. 😀
***11/19/2018 udpdate is dedicated to those fighting and affected by the California wild fires. My family lives all over central and Northern California. From Fresno to Sacramento and surrounding areas. So everytime there is a fire I panic. Luckily they escaped unscathed but so many have not. This update is for them. A portion of all proceeds from Monday 11/19 update will be donated to directrelief.org. In addition to California Firefighters fund, has been added to my daily donations. It’s not much but it’s sustainable, and something I can do. At times like this when I feel helpless, I hope it helps someone in need.
