I work with copper for so many reasons, but mainly because it is easy to work with, inexpensive, and has an amazing history. Not only do I love working with copper for all those reasons, but it also allows me the ability to recycle and reclaim copper in our environment. Along with copper, I scavenge for other precious mineral and stones to refashion into small works of art. Brass from old trumpets and wood baskets, silver from old trays and silver wear. I enjoy finding new ways to see and use copper radiators and wiring. I love the look of grandmas pearls and natural stone that was made into jewelry centuries ago and can find new beauty in a new way. My work is all hand made and each work of art is different.
