Jewelry and Enamels

My work has always been influenced by nature and my environment in some way and is sometimes narrative in theme. I have included stories about a few of the works within the photo album below. Media includes metals and mixed media.

Anna,

I left a comment but it isn't showing up so just in case it does, this is the second one.  I just wanted to say thank you for your kind words about my work and to say that I also checked out your work and think it is terrific.  I especially like the castings from the grape seeds and your rings.
