About Us


ABOUT ME:  I was born in Chicago, and have lived in Illinois for almost my entire life.  I grew up surrounded by art, and raised by two very creative parents.  My dad was a dentist, who dabbled in jewelry making, and metal sculpture.  My mom became a sculptor primarily working in stone carving.  

I married at a very early age and dropped out of college.  My life’s path took me to a very long and successful technology career.  I worked for a large corporation leading teams of technical people....while it was a great living, it wasn’t my passion.  For the last 30 years, I have been creating art in some form or another, but my passion lies in jewelry making.  

I have lived my entire life by teaching myself both in the technology world, and jewelry design.  Like most jewelry designers I started making beaded jewelry, then graduated to working with Metal Clay in 2003, and most recently have been teaching myself traditional metalsmith techniques.  My work is continually evolving....my head is always full of new designs.
