Lisa has been designing and making jewelry for over 13 years. Anything from glass, crystals, pearls, gemstones, or even interesting rocks might find their way into her jewelry. Lisa indulges in her passion of creating jewelry by stringing beads or wrapping, weaving, shaping, and hammering wire for textural effect. In addition to using high quality components, she makes some by hand, including lampwork beads, art clay pieces, pendants, and clasps.
Lisa teaches jewelry making at The Bead Biz in Helena, Alabama, including wire weaving, wire-wrapped pendants, rings, bracelets and jig classes. She participates in numerous area workshops/classes and has studied at the William Holland School of Lapidary Arts, in North Georgia.
Her work has been shown in several local venues as well as regional arts and craft shows. Lisa believes that jewelry should be fun, functional, look great, and make you happy. Having participated in Birmingham’s ArtWalk for the five of the last six years it is always one of Lisa’s very favorite shows.
