Maker Statement

I create intricate jewelry with a nature theme. Much of it includes the use of imagery created in anodized titanium overlaid with saw-pierced sterling silver and/or gems.






I am a transplant to the gorgeous mountains of WNC from Evanston, Illinois, born and raised in rural Florida where I grew up in an area populated by overwintering and retired carny performers. This colorful beginning was followed by education at the University of Chicago, marriage and children. For many years, I have been creating works with mountain imagery and calling them Imaginary Landscapes—places I wished for and dreamed about but that were not available to me in the "here and now". At last, living the dream! Much of the magic of my jewelry pieces comes from the exploration of the amazing properties of titanium, a metal which can be colored with the use of heat and/or voltage. The minutely detailed imagery I create in this unique material shifts in appearance from different angles, giving it a sense of life and vitality that cannot be captured fully in a photograph. I believe that every experience in my life makes its way into my work, and I can hardly wait to see what comes in each new chapter!
