MEET THE ARTIST
Colors and shapes from deep within the earth attract your eye and call to your heart; connecting you with the energies of the planet.
Nature's palette provides the paint for my jewelry designs. Each unique piece is handmade in a very personal response to these fossils and gemstones.
I am inspired by the the interplay of energies created by combinations of Diamonds, Opals, Druses, and unusual gemstones, as well as the familiar, such as Lapis, Amethyst, and Tourmalines.
My bond with the earth's treasures began when I merged geology with East Asian religious studies at Indiana University. Further studies, including intensive coursework in jewelry at Penland Art School, have increased my technical knowledge of silver and goldsmithing.
My portfolio includes: one-of-a-kind and custom pieces; popular styles in limited editions; custom designed earrings; bracelets; pendants; and rings.
