Artwalk 2017 Location: Historic Morris Avenue
After studying painting in graduate school, I began my career, years ago, as a painter and a teacher. In my early work I always responded to objects, texture and color. Now, after taking some time off to raise my two beautiful daughters, I’ve taken a renewed interest in art through jewelry making. In my jewelry making I also respond to texture and color but this time in semi-precious, natural stone and metal instead of paint. I’m always on the search for an unusual stone that inspires me to create a one-of-a-kind necklace, bracelet or earrings. I use a variety of stones, leather and metals such as copper, brass and silver, in my jewelry. I wire wrap, hand hammer, and use a variety of techniques to create my simple, strong pieces that make an impression. I am very interested in creating wearable, affordable, unique jewelry that become that favorite piece you never leave home without.
