Description

“For 100,000 years, humans have sought adornment with jewelry, as a talisman or symbol of beliefs, ideals and mythology. The ability of jewelry to convey both an individual sense of beauty and a tribal belonging inspires what I create. From my days of childhood dress up play, I have adored the feeling of wearing jewelry, and eventually the most economical way to add to my collection was to make it myself.

As a jeweler, my hands and spirit have been compelled to create. My business originated in a traditional silver studio in 1986 after receiving a BFA from the University of Tennessee. I created purely sterling silver designs until I discovered polymer clay and it’s vast malleablity and colorful possibilities. In my studio, I am constantly searching for the adventurous creative path, improvising with techniques and materials for my own entertainment. Often a new design is born out of seeking something fresh for a coming season, a new attitude, or a re-framed mindset. I am committed to wearability, durability and comfort in design, and my work is guaranteed to last.”

I feel grateful to have been making a living as a jewelry artist for over 30 years. My career was born during my first jewelry making course at the University of Tennessee in 1982, and since then my life has revolved around creating adornment.
