I make Jewelry Art to enable quiet self expression in a noisy, crowded, mass-manufactured world. Each piece of my jewelry art is as unique as you are.
I am inspired and rejuvenated by the peacefulness of the natural environment I live in. You will see symbols in my designs reflecting the power and strength of trees; the balance of my family’s creek-pond-forest-pasture ecosystem; and the beauty of nature changing through the seasons. My dogs and I walk my family’s land with camera and sketch pad, looking for patterns, textures and shapes to include in my work....well, the dogs have other aspirations, usually involving the chasing of squirrels and chipmunks or laying in the sunshine. We are committed to the protection of our forest land
Each unique jewelry art piece is handcrafted in my studio in the forest foothills of the Willamette Valley near Sweet Home, Oregon.
