I began making jewelry after 27 years of teaching special education. A beading class and it's setting, a bead store that dazzled somehow unlocked an artist hidden within me. Years have passed since then. Yet, as in the beginning, the process of fabricating a new piece still starts out with a vision of color, texture and shape that inevitably evolves, each piece finding it's own direction whether it be copper, sterling silver or enamel, until ultimately the final design is revealed.
I live with my husband, a retired educator in the Little Spokane River Valley.
