I am fascinated with the materials I use to make jewelry. The silver, rocks and minerals are full of the wonder of nature. It's pretty cool that when I cut the stones I use in my work, the stones will tell me what they want.
I have been designing and crafting my jewelry for thirty-plus years. I started out at the Saturday Market in Portland, Oregon and spent five years there before expanding into galleries and gift shops in the Northwest and California. My work is now carried by galleries around the country. Meditation time is important to me. I live around lots of water so when a break is needed, I go sit by the river, meditate and pretend to be fishing. I also love to garden.
