I create unique art jewelry from re-purposed copper. All my work is handmade by me.
I also play with beads as that is where I started in the world of jewelry!
I took classes in 2001 and learned the art of working with metal. I had some wonderful instructors, Dawn Nakanishi and Carol Holiday. I also had the opportunity to take an etching work shop from the late great Carol Webb. These three women changed my world of jewelry making forever! After a two year class marathon I stopped and decided to work on my style.
A few summers ago took a workshop on torch enameling at Creator Haven in Watsonville from Evelyn Markasky. She is the forth woman to really rock my world of metal art.....
