I make independent jewelry that is distinctive. Interests lie with the natural specimens and items found in the home and garden. Working in a small scale gives the viewer insight to another world, and details are important to me. I work in sterling silver with additions of semiprecious stones or beads. Nature is a recurrent theme in my work and how we can interact with it in a caring manner. I have been making jewelry for 42 years. I began on a whim and never stopped.
