I have a deep appreciation for natural beauty

 I make jewelry because I have a wonderful gift of seeing beauty in just about anything. I have a fascination and love of natural materials and the mystery of how it can be just plain beautiful gratis of mother nature. The desire to create, build and work with my hands, mind and heart is a natural gift I received thanks to the great examples I witnessed from my parents and many other elders in the family. I am the first to make jewelry but the principles of craftsmanship, having a vision of my own and acting on that idea are a well ingrained part of who I am as a person and as an artist.
