From the beautiful mountains of Butte, Montana, I work in my home studio creating artisan jewelry made from silver, gold, and copper. My love of jewelry making was born from my love of stones and minerals, and my desire to take the elements found in nature and transform them into wearable art. By combining metal-smithing and wire wrap techniques, I create strong, yet finely detailed jewelry with both delicate and rustic features. My jewelry melds both Feminine and masculine energies into one piece, and many of the stones I use are left in their rough form, and the naturally beautiful patterns and colors created by the torch on metal are often used as a design element in the final piece. My creative process is ever evolving as I experiment with new ways to combine metalwork and wire wrap techniques in my attempt to capture the essence of earth and beauty.
