Where do I start?
I am an adventurous woman who uses high contrast, texture and earth-tones to create feminine, artsy designs with a Southwestern influence. My pieces are designed to finish off an overall ‘look’ … and draw compliments! Jewelry design meandered into my life gradually. My first designs used memory wire to create bracelets. The multiple coils were fun to experiment with… and I loved wearing the finished designs. Then I began seeing other possibilities and designs that I just HAD to unleash. I took classes and absorbed every bit of knowledge possible. I started with the basics in wire wrap and morphed into more advanced metal work.
At this point I knew I had found my passion. Working with copper and silver hooked me completely. There was no turning back now! Gems and metal are a permanent part of my existence. Design Ideas are everywhere. My niece once asked how I came up with all the new designs. I thought about that and answered. “The Ideas keep coming and literally will not stop”
My head spins sometimes thinking of all the possibilities.
My book, Inside the Mind of a Jewelry Designer chronicles my journey into passion and creativity. The book is a labor of love.. and in itself another emotional journey for me. I work on my creations in my Arizona Studio.
Kitty Button ‘helps me too.
