Stringing: bold, colorful, texture laden designs, often influenced by the artists and artisans who create the beads I work with.
Wirework: simple, clean, and highly primitive. I use ancient wire-working techniques and aim for what the earliest jewelry must have looked like, to create something timeless, like what you'd find in a museum's antiquities exhibit.
Beadwork: totally unique and original one of a kind art pieces.

Keep up with me:
- All of us can use a helpful business hint once a week. What's yours?
It depends on the item. For earrings and wirework I'm mainly concerned with what the market will bear. For beadweaving the key factor is how long the piece takes to create. With my strung pieces the biggest factor is the price of the materials that go into the piece.
- We'd love to see your little corner of the world, where you create.
- Where do you see your artwork in one year? Any plans in the works?
