Get to Know

Welcome to my Artfire page! I have been a jewelry artist since 1989 and I have participated in many art festivals across the country. My primary metal is sterling silver, but I also incorporate gold, copper, brass, and niobium into some of my designs. I'm crazy for gemstones, pearls, and dichroic glass, and I especially enjoy working with natural stones that have interesting shapes, colors and patterns. My pieces are hand-fabricated using innovative metalworking and lapidary techniques. My first career is classical music, with which I am still very active. My other great passions are animals, nature, organic gardening, wildlife watching, and fiber arts. Please contact me if you have any questions! Thank you!
