I love texture. I combine interesting beads/cabs with fine silver,
sterling silver and gold. This creates patterns that are unique and
wonderful. I never design prior to creating. I like to feel the
beads/cabs and let my hands decide what will happen to them combined
with the metal. I compliment the beads/cabs/objects, making the
wire/metal feel at home with the final design. My goal: to establish the
best possible solution between the metal and enhancements, using color,
design, pattern, simplicity and wearability.
My passion for fabrication began by taking classes at a local Fine
Arts Center. I continued on with courses in fabrication at three local
colleges and the Revere Goldsmith School in San Francisco where my eye
for design came into play. Working with metal, creating one-of-a-kind
pieces has become the ultimate source of intrigue for me...nothing could
be more personally rewarding, except of course the end result - a
completely happy, satisfied buyer!
