After making my first piece of jewelry, I knew I had found a craft about which I was passionate! That was many years ago, and I've enjoyed every minute of becoming an "artisan." My style varies, depending on how the metal or bead speaks to me. I enjoy metal and wire work especially, as well as playing with color and texture. A few of the tools I utilize to make my jewelry include a torch, kiln, rolling mill, flex shaft dremel, and many, many types of hammers! I live in Chilhowie, VA, on 20 acres, with my husband and two boys.
