I create sculptural jewelry informed by lines and textures etched in the land by nature and also patterns that occur through man's agricultural practices. I am inspired by these vast aerial landscapes and, using gold, silver and stones, redefine them into works designed for the body. Currently my work is represented by Craft Alliance in St. Louis Mo and PS gallery in Columbia MO.

i'm in touch with peg now 'cos i'm coming thru next tues/weds. looking at our thread, it sounds like after work is best for you, but we could arrive a little before your day ends so we could see you "in action." does peg know where you work? does next tuesday seem like a good day to you? would you mind sharing your email so i don't have some communicating thru email and some thru crafthaus? thanks so much! looking forward to meeting! anne
ok, so the message i sent yesterday, totally screwy. i am not heading to new orleans from you. i'm heading to greenvile, some 650 miles away. about the same but i cannot set-up till early fri morning. there was logic behind my original choice of wednesday departure. SO, the upshot is i will pass thru on the 9th, as i originally said. whew, what a dodo bird.
sorry time for email is becoming scarce with only a little over 2 weeks to go b4 i hit the road. no problem about the evening. i realized that i have to be in new orleans by thursday early because my set-up is 11 on thurs the 10th. so i think i'll be heading thru on the 8th, leaving me all day on the 9th to travel down there. it's 675 miles from stL to NO, and i can do that in a day. could visit you during the day too, if that's not a distraction. do you have a cell phone number i could plug into my cell. i don't always have an internet connection and i don't have any kind of smart phone. just a regular old one that i can call from or text. looking forward to meeting up in stL.
i'm discovering there are so many great metalsmiths in the StL area. there are more people in your area than my whole state! i will be passing thru StL right after the first weekend in may. i'll be coming from the brookside show in KC. so that would be may 7 and/or 9. i'm heading to hannibal to a friends but i wanted to stop and see peg and now you! i'll also be leaving hannibal on the 9th so i could pop in that day also, should one or both days suit you guys better. let me know your thoughts. i have to get to peg with the dates also.
“While striving to incorporate fashion and function in my body of work, Joe’s was created. Reflecting on the glamor once held by tobacco use, I pulled imagery from vintage cigarette advertisements. Once used to seduce the consumer, I take this now taboo subject matter and place it over the belt as a means of advertising and seduction of both the product and body. This reminds my audience of the cultural change that has evolved into the disapproval of tobacco usage and advertising.”
I’m on a residency in glass walled building suspended on the side of a mountain, with an adjoining commercial kitchen. This space was designed for special functions. The owners would like to open it up for weddings, and it really would be an amazing place for such things. The owners generously offered this residency as part of an…See More

"I put a back on each of the pieces so that they would be a solid medallion. I also soldered the ring on first. All that was left for me was to grind off the remainder of the sprue and buff them a bit. "
