I am a native Pennsylvania artist who has been passionate about creating art jewelry for 23 years. I work primarily in sterling silver, fine silver precious metal clay, natural gemstones and enamels. While my technique has evolved and expanded over time, the one consistent factor has been incorporating vibrant color and texture in my work. I usually begin by designing a piece around a colorful semi-precious gemstone, or a vibrant Cloisonné focal that I’ve created. I also incorporate enamel with post-fired metal clay in the Champlevé pieces I create. For inspiration, I often draw from my early career and life experiences, my cultural background, my travels in the US and abroad, and my natural surroundings. I enjoy creating jewelry that is Artful in composition, but wearable at the same time. I hold several certifications in precious metal clay, and am a juried member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen and the Bucks County Guild of Craftsmen. I am a member of the PA Society of Goldsmiths, and the Greater Philadelphia Metal Clay Guild. My work has been published in Handmade Business magazine, Art Jewelry Magazine, and was recently on the cover and in a feature article of Sunshine Artist Magazine.
