Oh! That’s beautiful! I heard a lady exclaim when she saw my jewelry – I smiled.
I always had the dream of creating things – I have boxes, shelves and drawers full of projects and supplies. That’s how my journey started. In my travels I discovered Ethnic jewelry and fell in love with the style. Eventually, this became the desire to create jewelry. I finally had the time to pursue this craft when I retired. I took classes and workshops at the Baum School of Art in Allentown and latter at Penn State – Lehigh Valley Campus.
I take silver and stones to create jewelry inspired by nature and flavored by the American Southwest and other ethnic cultures. I’m always looking for new stones, new colors and shapes and learning new techniques and finding new tools.
