I have been creating art in one form or another since I was old enough to make sculptures out of soap flakes and explore the joys of finger painting. For the last 15 years, handmade beaded jewelry design has been my passion. I collect beautiful and unusual beads from all over the world, many of which are handmade lampwork beads by prominent artists in the field. I've always enjoyed making things in small scale, and seeing how a small object can stand on it's own as a work of art. I love combining assorted glass and sterling silver beads and other metal elements to make a truly unique piece.
Many designs include my individually handmade beaded flower assemblies -- no two are ever alike. I often incorporate handmade lampwork glass beads and bead crochet into my work. While many of my pieces are accented by sterling silver beads and components, many designs are made with antiqued brass, copper, gold or silver toned metals, and other more affordable materials. I only make one-of-a-kind items.
