I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I am interested in jewelry as a form of non-verbal communication. I work with discarded tin cans and select a particular image, color or text to become the focal point. These vignettes hint at a story. A memento mori inspired piece reminds the wearer of her own mortality, while a portrait brooch honors a loved one.

My jewelry is meant to be worn, but may be a component of a sculptural object created both to contain and display.

Join me this summer in the classroom! I will be teaching at two of my favorite places, Arrowmont school of Arts and Crafts and Penland school of Crafts

Penland School of Crafts - July 25-August 10. "Designing with Color and Narrative"

Arrowmont - June 13 -19. "Jewelry Enshrined"
