I have always loved and admired jewelry

for as long as I can remember.  

I love wearing it, looking at it on others,

and buying it. 

So why not make it too?!

After years of dabbling in other crafts,

I took a class in beaded jewelry

and that was the beginning of my journey. 

I don’t know why it took me so long

to finally focus,

but I can’t imagine doing anything else.

I have been a jewelry and fiber artist

for over 25 years.   

My husband, Mark and I moved

to Sandpoint Idaho over 31 years ago

and live along the beautiful and tranquil

Pack River in the Selkirk Mountains.  

I spend a lot of my free time at the river,

which is a constant source of inspiration

and creativity for my art.   

For the past several years,

I have focused my jewelry

around mixed metals

and cold join techniques. 

The use of found objects, recycled materials, coins, wire, common hardware, and more, has given me a new found freedom

in expressing my art and creativity.   

Each piece is uniquely different.

With each passing year,

I find myself reaching outside the box

and wanting to evoke a reaction

(hopefully positive!) to my work. 

I love looking at an object

and wondering how I can transform it

into a beautiful piece of jewelry!
