Creativity was always a part of my life, but I didn't recognize it until later in life.  My first attempt was making Barbie doll clothes at eleven years old, and from there my creative outlets were sewing, knitting, crafting, decorating and creating marketing materials and sales contests in my job.  Finally, I was introduced to various jeweler techniques, and when I discovered chain mail, I became obsessed with learning many of the 1,000+ weaves.  After adding silversmith and leather working skills to my repertoire, my work progressed into a bolder, vintage European ascetic.  

It is a blessing to work with materials from the earth; sterling silver, brass, copper, gold and bronze, leather and gemstones.  My jewellery creations are works of natural materials, using both ancient and contemporary tools and methods.
