About Me

I started making jewelry about fifteen years ago or so, beginning with simple macrame necklaces and bracelets with large hole beads.  I moved into wirework when a relative gave me a box of broken odds and ends of vintage jewelry, and I needed a way to use the beads.  On a trip to a craft store, I found a 4-page pamphlet on simple wire wrap techniques, so I picked up some craft wire and a couple of basic tools.  

An obsession was born.

Those first few attempts grew into a happy hobby, and then a sideline business, and now I design and make jewelry and wire sculpture full-time.  My husband and my son take part, sketching out design ideas for me to try, and promoting my work.  Much of my work is based in ancient myth and symbol, and I'm also deeply inspired by Victorian, Art Nouveau and Art Deco design.
