Teaching was my life but now I love creating my own jewelry. I choose to use items from nature to create with. To me, nature is in my soul and brings peace to me. Water, feathers, pebbles, sea glass and sea shells are my inspiration for all of my pieces. I feel very passionate about being a part of nature and want my jewelry to reflect it.
I incorporate texture to represent aspects of nature and use different materials as the base of my designing. For example in one of my river rock pieces silver strips that set on top of the main stone are forged to represent the flow of water over the stones in a river. The smaller stone on the top of the strips represent how forceful water can be pushing other rocks around.
