"I'm a jewelry artist for many reasons, but mainly because making jewelry brings together my interests in nature, in color and in texture. I like combining old pieces and techniques with new materials and ideas. Currently I like fusing glass, beads and fibers. My work is holistic: it convenes my past and present, and that of others; I am able to use all the elements I like so much — stones, rocks, fossils, glass, beads and fibers. The potential is limitless. So every creation is an exciting exploration."
I try to find new and interesting ways to push the medium from rigid to free form to three-dimensional. And while I am trying to find new ways of creating patterns and shapes, I am always conscious of the strong link I feel to the past — to all the women weavers from ancient cultures who used this fiber structure so long ago.
