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.
