I learned the art of lost wax casting in my senior year of high school.  Continuing the pursuit of learning the art of jewelry making, I took many jewelry classes at a local community college with Barbara Bouchard.  Working with Barbara, I became proficient at lost wax casting as well as basic metalsmithing.  During this time I began assisting Barbara with teaching basic jewelry classes. After community college I continued metalsmithing classes at Humboldt State University, working with David La Plantz and Holly Sparkman.

 

After college my love of Jewelry making took a back seat to various careers through out the years. During this time I would occasionally make jewelry for friends and teach private students.

 

In the early 2000’s a friend introduced me to Hadar Jacobson. I began taking classes with Hadar and fell in love with Metal Clay.  I discovered Camp PMC and have completed Courses 101, 107, 201 and 301. I am now certified as a Principal Instructor for Camp PMC. 

 

My metal clay jewelry is inspired by my love of nature.  Often using elements I find in nature, like wasp’s nests, pods, leaves and bones.

 

I have exhibited my work in various Northern California galleries and participated in Open Studios in Sedona and Prescott Arizona.
