More about me - Behind the Scenes

 

Who am I?

I am mostly a self-taught jewelry artist and metalsmith.  I have always enjoyed handcrafted skills, as a child sewing on mother’s sewing machine through adulthood, learning from books and classes.  I studied jewelry fabrication at several local arts centers and William Holland School of Lapidary.  

My metalsmith techniques include soldering, forging, casting, stamping/texturing, and enameling. 

I also cut rocks, grinding and polishing them into designer cabochons and faceted gemstones.

  Plume agate  shaped into a fan shaped cabochon, preserving the natural crystal formations.
