" I discovered metal after many years with paint, brushes, and pencil.

I find metal to be very exciting to work with as it can be stretched and compressed, cut with a sawblade, hammered. soldered, textured, formed, colored, melted and reformed into a sheet and you can start all over again.  This is called fabrication and this is what I do"

"Another exciting aspect of jewelry making is the addition of gemstones.  I find that cutting, grinding, and polishing my own stones to any shape I desire is a large part of my artistic expression.  I teach classes at home and my students love it when I cut stones for them to buy.  I also love being able to pass along to them the knowledge I have for making the jewelry."
