An article about me and my work in Fall 2016 Kearsarge Magazine.
I love working with my hands and making things. Beading was where I started, but began taking classes exploring metal work. Inspired, I was soon creating organic sculptural jewelry based on my deep love of nature and plant forms. Each piece I make is hand forged using techniques such as chasing, repousse, fold-forming and embossing. I make all the elements of each item using fine silver, sterling silver, copper and brass, but also incorporate recycled metals such as antique silver plate to add a unique twist to my contemporary designs. You will also find interesting elements such as unpolished stones, cut gems and found objects. No two pieces are alike.
