Metalsmith / Enamelist
"I’ve been told I need to decide what I want to do when I grow up, but how do you when there are just so many wonderful things to learn how to do. I have taken workshops in stained glass, pottery, paper making and even wood carving; but my love of working with glass and metals has always been my focus to my jewelry designs. I work with hot glass in fusing and lampworking and about four years ago I began incorporating more metalsmithing into my designs where I do enamel on copper as well as etching and embossing on copper and brass. I love taking workshops to help me enhance my work and I find no matter what workshop I take there is always some part of it that I can bring back to inspire me.
I guess I could refer to myself as a self-taught jewelry artisan, but I am able to do what I do today by many skilled artisans sharing their gift with me."
