check her out she has such a unique way of making cloisonne jewelry i love it
I have four children that get bigger everyday and it’s difficult to
find the time to “work”. The definition of the word work to some people
could be something not very enjoyable, but I’m happy to say that I love
what I do.
I graduated from Syracuse University with a Fine Arts degree. At the
time I studied photography, but as an art major I spent time learning
about different art forms. Since school I’ve spent time working in
photography, graphic design, cake decorating and of course all the arts
and crafts you could think of doing with kids. Life wouldn’t be complete
if I couldn’t use my hands to express myself.
Like the majority of jewelers, I started out using beads. The
colors are beautiful and I feel as though I’m a child in a candy shop
when I visit a bead store. I moved onto incorporating silver wire with
my beads. As my skills developed my work became more complex. I am now
using both silver smithing techniques and enameling to create my current
line of jewelry.
My jewelry is made of a fairly new type of Sterling Silver called
Argentium Silver, this silver tarnishes at a much slower rate then the
standard Sterling Silver. I also have started to incorporate gold into
my work. I love the contrast of different colors metals and plan to
continue using the two as I design more jewelry.
