About the Artist: My work with precious metals often reflects a love of nature. As a child, I regularly accompanied mymother- a self-taught naturalist- on hikes to identify the birds, flowers and trees of northern Indiana. Trips to the sands dunes and beaches of nearby Lake Michigan gave way to awe and respect for the abundant animal and plant life there. Accordingly, you will find nature themes abundant in the jewelry I create.
I hope you'll take a moment to browse through the gallery where you will find examples of my work with silver, gold, and precious/ semi-precious stones. Due to the unique nature of the stones set, much of the jewelry presented is unique, one-of-a-kind or "limited edition".
