I am from the northwest, but have traveled extensively and lived abroad for a few years, which was wonderful. I have now settled in the northwest and am glad to be back in the melting pot I call home, where I find inspiration abounds. I have been making jewelry for a number of years now and have dabbled in many different forms of jewelry making. From bead work to up-cycling, I've tried it! Amazingly, there are still techniques I have yet to try. I am a professional artisan jeweler. I work with many forms of metal (wire, sheet, clay) and gemstones. I enjoy silver-smithing, wire wrapping/weaving, wire knitting and crochet, forging and many other forms of metal manipulation. I am self-taught and continue to learn new techniques! I also enjoy many hobbies, such as: knitting, crochet, quilting, sewing, book making, paper crafts, etc.
