I've loved making jewelry for a long, long time and love, love, love couture fashion, photography, costuming & creating re-purposed art from found objects. Everything around us is a wonderful visual interpretation of someone's keen eye & expression of function and design. I find my own personal reward in creating unique, wearable art from antique & vintage jewelry bits, out-of-context artifacts, old & unique practical hardware and semi-precious stones. I make things because I love doing just that. Life is art!
