As a child I spent hours hiking and drawing. My love of nature and art has inspired most of my jewelry. I love design and can be inspired by beautiful design. One of my favorite pieces of jewelry was inspired by a coffee table. I spend a lot of time hiking in the desert and the mountains of Utah and Wy. I am always looking for ways to turn nature and other beautiful items into jewelry.  

I have two Maser's degrees in Education and have been an instructor in the Elementary Ed. Dept. at U.S.U. for 17 years. At which time, I taught college students and children. I also taught children art during this time. They are the ones who make you excited about art.

All products are designed and handcrafted by me. I use sterling silver, copper, brass, semiprecious stones, pearls, wood, leather etc. These items are metalworked, soldered, oxidized, enameled, wire wrapped, colored, etched,and sealed. I use purchased chain and some findings, also purchased leather and some sterling and designer beads. I make these items in my shop at my home. This is where I do all of the soldering, enameling and etching.
