Body/Description

Jewelry has always been an obsession for me.  As a little girl, I could sit for hours on my mother's bed going through jewelry box.  I began making jewelry at about eight years old from colored telephone wires and gum wrappers.  As a college student at Denison University, I majored in fine art, specializing in intaglio etching printmaking, where metal is etched using a fine stylus.  My jewelry is made in a similar fashion by carving wax with a very fine tools in order to create detail within the design.

The process begins with an idea, inspired by the beauty around me.  I could be pattern from the gorgeous architecture in Spain, where I lived for 18 years, or simple forms found in nature and everyday objects.
