I started making jewelry in 1989 right after the Loma Prieta earthquake left my California ceramic studio in ruins. The jewelry I make explores a modern, minimal style and a lighter, cartoon style, much like my previous ceramic work. Each style expresses a different side of my aesthetic - fun and youthful but also contemporary and clean. Enameling allows me to use fun colors in my cartoon inspired jewelry and bold color blocking in my New Century Modern line. I love to work from a drawing and then see where the metalworking and enameling take me.
I have sold my jewelry to boutiques, galleries, and museum shops for 25 years. These days I also have a presence on Etsy and Handmade at Amazon as clients have embraced online shopping.
