Born and raised in Michigan, I have recently moved to Denver to be closer to family. Now I divide my time between making jewelry and living in Denver or in the mountains helping at my sister’s dude ranch.
I started making jewelry to deal with an allergy to base metals. I wanted to make things that worked for me. I fell in love with the craft, and over twenty years later I am still in the business. My pieces use handmade glass beads from other artisans, crystals, pearls, gemstones, and precious metals.
