My first 20+ years were a beading extravaganza. I started off with a pearl bracelet and never looked back. The last 10 years have been focused on metalsmithing using copper, brass, silver and bronze. I use a variety of techniques including sawing, texturing, form folding, enameling, different forms of coloring metals, some wire working, 3D techniques as well as cold connections. I have been teaching private classes several times per year for most of my jewelry making history."
