My passion for jewelry started over 40 years ago at age fifteen. At twenty, I entered the Gemological Institute of America (G.I.A.) and earned a certificate as a Graduate Gemologist and a certificate in Jewelry Design and became a Jewelry Arts Instructor at G.I.A.
During my career I created jewelry pieces for numerous boutiques and big name stores including Tiffany’s, Black Star & Frost, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom’s and Tivol.
In 1994 I became interested in Japanese metal techniques and now I am one of a hand-full of artists practicing the art of Mokume Gane. Many examples can be found on my website.
In 2015 I relocated to Sisters, Oregon. In 2019 I opened my own studio and retail showroom in the Three Creeks Building in Sisters.
I continue to live a life of passion driven by the urge to create things of beauty. This is a great little town and I hope you visit my showroom when you come to Sisters.
