My love of creating jewelry goes back many years. As a young teenager I made jewelry using everything from hot glue and glitter to roofing tins and copper plumbing supplies. Thankfully, I've evolved! I now enjoy working with precious and semi-precious stones, precious metals and lampwork beads. The lampwork beads I use are created by me in my studio. Click on the link below to learn more about the exciting art of lampwork bead making. I also enjoy working with metals and hope to add more fabricated and cast metal pieces to my collection.
I graduated with honors from Texas Christian University with a degree in Fashion Design. I live in Texas with my husband, daughter and two Yorkies.
Thank you for visiting my site. I hope you enjoy my jewelry and beads as much as I enjoy creating them.
