Welcome to my crazy little metal studio!

Interests

Metal, metal and MORE metal!!! I love vintage beads, czech beads gemstones of all sorts, colors and shapes. And tools. I love my metalworking tools. My saw is like my third hand and my torch is my life line to metal manipulation!

Skills and Techniques

riveting, bezel setting, hand piercing, torch fired enameling, oxidizing, custom designing, soldering, cold connections, heat coloring, you name it I have (or will) tried it!

Get to Know

With an independent streak that seems to extend beyond anyone's sight line, I have always needed to do my own thing. I was lucky to find the love of someone (my husband, Paul) who fully supports my wild, independent streak and actually encourages it. I took a long break from creating jewelry when our son, Cody, was a baby because I wanted to dedicate my time to him. Once he was in school full-time, the pull to return to my jeweler's bench was nearly overwhelming. With the discovery of the wonderful online handmade venues and the near instant first sale when I listed a pair of my sapling earrings, I was off and running again and Paul and Cody both were my biggest supporters! That was nearly four years ago and I have been going strong ever since. I spend my weekdays working away soldering, stamping, sawing and oxidizing metal in my studio and my evenings and weekends with my family. Having a home studio maintains the freedom to balance my time with my family and be able to be there for anything that life throws at us all the while being able to live my life as an artist. I realize this makes me one of the luckiest people alive!
