About the Artist
I began metalsmithing in March of 2009. My work began primarily in sterling silver and has evolved to incorporate concrete and felt. When I showed my first jewelry instructor my very first jewelry design, his response was, “The world has gone to hell!”
I have degrees in music education and community leadership (yea, I don’t really know what that means either) but I have always loved making things with my hands. It wasn’t until I started making jewelry that I realized how important creating with my hands is to me.
I live in Pittsburgh, PA with my husband, son, two rescue pit bulls and a rescue cat. I hope you enjoy the pieces you see and please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
