All my life I have been drawn to the creative process in a variety of ways. When faced with choosing a life path my passion drew me to focus on music and the visual arts.

Over time I became accomplished in music yet my creative process demanded an additional form of expression. My passion for the visual arts was rekindled through study with Dorothy Danziger at CalArts and I have enjoyed the parallel careers of music and visual arts over the last twenty years.

Numbers and structures fascinate me. The dynamic pull between the intellect and spirit manifests in my creations. For the past five years, I’ve been focusing on the pleasures inherent in jewelry--the play of light in gemstones, the textures and weight of different metals and the technical challenges involved in making art wearable.

Artisan Flute Jewelry grew out of my dual careers as I began to add flute keys into my jewelry designs. Being intrigued with using musical instrument parts as design elements, I now incorporate recycled ivory piano keys, bow hair, and sterling silver cast bassoon reeds in Artisan Music Jewelry.

My jewelry has been collected by people in all walks of life. I’ve been honored to make engagement and wedding rings as well as special requested pendants and earrings. I get immense joy out of designing a special piece with or for the wearer of the piece.

Your wish can be realized! Custom orders need to be placed two weeks in advance of delivery date, so it is certain to be there for that special moment.

This spring my pendant Caged Porcelain was included in the book 500 Pendants, published by Lark Books..
