Art Media: jewelry

Inspired by:

The women in my family and friends have loved wearing my jewelry keeping something I made close to their hearts.   Thank you to Auntie Mitzie for teaching me pearl knotting twenty years ago, my sister Jane who continually gives me feedback, my treasure hunting friend Joann B for teaching me to look for the "fire" and "painting" in stones,  for my mother who loves everything I make for her, for jewelry teachers Anthony Chavez and Brad Smith for unending patience and guidance,  to co-members of the Culver City Rock and Mineral Club for teaching me lapidary and rock hounding and the Catalina Art  Association members who push me to higher creative standards. When my clients wear my jewelry my inspiration is renewed because I love seeing my creations.

How I express myself in my art:

 Years of collecting sea shells from the South Bay beaches, sparkly rocks picked up on hikes,  bought precious beads, my handmade lampworked and fused dichroic glass beads and found ethnic treasures from my travels form the components of my jewelry.  Photography taught me to look for the unusual in the ordinary and appreciate how light plays on objects.  When creating art jewelry I am centered, calm and joyful.  It is my wish that my jewelry will compliment the beauty of the wearer both inside and out.
