Welcome to my happy place!! My Studio. This is where you will find me when I'm not having to be a responsible adult. This is where I create jewelry. My creative voice. Having only a four-year high school art class background, it was rich in the fundamentals of drawing and composition. From there, I self taught a lot of what I know today, having only recently attended retreat workshops. My art is multi media. A little metal, fiber, paint, beadwork... add a few found elements, and I have the perfect start to yet another masterpiece. Every piece is one of a kind. I draw it out, create it, then put the drawing in my portfolio.... start over again. I bring you a glimpse of me through my work. Come on in, take a seat, tell me what you'd like.
The beauty that is held within a fire agate stone is mesmerizing. Different facets of color, the irregular cut shape - all lend themselves to a unique style I like to call Firestone. My designs from this stone are strong, bold and rather on the big side. Nothing dainty for this truely powerful stone.
In this collection, you will find elements of outdoor things I love. The very curve of every piece of wire has been an influence from something in nature. I love being out in the garden and draw much energy from all it has to offer. Birds, butterflies, tall grasses, even the very dirt I dig in, all speaks to me asking to be made into a one of a kind design.
In this collection, these house style shapes are filled with found items that relate to each other on both the main floor as well as in the attic. I love creating these little "places".... copper, silver and resin are the foundation, fill with whatever you desire.
