About the Artist

 I began my jewelry making journey over twenty years ago, it started with a love of things that sparkle and some fishing line. Fast forward through the years, many experiments, classes and much growth in design and skill.  Happily, I am still constructing wearable art that more often than not sparkles!

During the day I work at our family’s business renting construction equipment.  On my time off I take a break from the dirty big equipment and visit my “girlie side”.   I often joke that working to create pretty things keeps my life in balance.

 The ocean inspires me, and you can see that in the colors that I use the most. I call them mermaid colors. Like the ebb and flow of the waves, my work is always changing. I strive to always keep changing my designs, and advancing my skills. I love working with dichoic glass because I would not be able to ever make the same piece twice. Only the finest components are used in my jewelry including sterling silver, Swarovski Crystal and genuine sea glass.

My jewelry can be found at local galleries and shows.  Please check out my  Show Schedule Page.
