I am an artist, designer and maker of bold, sculptural jewelry .
I am dedicated to synthesizing techniques and materials in new ways. Being open to new ideas and techniques is what keeps the designing and making process stimulating. My work continually evolves.
I work in many metals and add color using gems, crystals, fused glass, fibers and found objects. I hand craft my work personally in my High Desert Albuquerque studio.
