My jewelry is made for art lovers. Distinctively contemporary, the shapely forms and linear details are inspired by my graphic design experience and the printing process. Clean and uncluttered, each piece is personally handcrafted by me. I am a one-woman studio!
Because of the nature of hand-carving, my jewelry has a special uniqueness, making no two pieces exactly alike. Pieces are offered in solid sterling silver or sterling silver accented by a pure, 22 karat gold overlay that is hand-applied.
I am committed to operating an eco-friendly studio. I use non-toxic chemicals whenever possible and recycle (including metal and metal dust). I care about our earth and the health of all beings.
A professional artist for more than 40 years, my design background influences everything I create. Graphic artistry reveals itself in my linear designs-- featuring pattern, texture and shape.
I studied at Paier School of Art, where I graduated with honors. After a long career as a package designer, I went on to learn the art of metalsmithing and metal clay through workshops and classes with many prominent teachers in the field. I'm a Rio Grande certified artisan in the metal clay medium and have achieved level one of the Metal Clay Masters Registry.
My work has been featured in several books and magazines and has been exhibited in shows and galleries across the United States. My studio is in my home in Windsor, CT.
