I grew up spending a lot of time in the outdoors. Through hiking and camping I acquired a love of nature, and through my early artistic influences, I began to express that passion through my artwork. Creating art with my hands gives me the pleasure of creating something tangible.
At first that tangible expression took the form of clay, but as the years passed, I turned to the small-scale expression that jewelry allows. My “wearable art” focuses on sterling sliver and precious gemstones, both drawn from the earth I love.
All of our pieces are handmade, and many will have slight variations from the style as pictured. natural stones, pearls and gems all vary.
All of our Artisan pieces of silver made with PMC are made one at a time giving each a special look of it’s own. The tree lichen, seed pods and most leaves are one of a kind due to the fact that the original burns away in the firing process. In cases such as these we can always produce a piece approximately the same size but not the exact same item. This is what is special about Nature.
Hello there! My passion for knitting and crocheting began 40 years ago, and I have been creating one of a kind jewelry for over 15 years. I have loved to craft things from a very early age, and enjoy working with a variety of materials such as fabric, metal, wood, stone and yarn, just to name a few.
Each day I walk through life astonished and grateful for the beauty that surrounds me. I see it in my garden, my community of friends and in the extraordinary environment and people of the Northwest where I live. I search for it in line, color, texture, like foraging a feast for the eyes. My process begins with this. The making is my way of expressing that joyful response in the form of jewelry or body adornments.
