I create award-winning textured silver jewelry with gemstones and 18k gold decorated bezel work. Some bezels are etched surrounds, others pierced to let light illuminate the stones or fabricated to make the stones attractive from all angles. I also make pieces that are either carved out of wax, repoussed or fabricated in layers using piercing for the base, soldered sides, sealing the top and finally creating the third layer with individual cutouts in 18 k gold.
My fine arts background includes the University of Colorado, Parson's School of Design and Cecelia Bauer's Studio in NYC. I have won numerous national awards and was a featured artist in the Bruce Museum's "Bijoux: The Origins and Impact of Jewelry" exhibition.
I am also the only jeweler included in the book “America’s Leading Ladies: Who Positively Impact the World”. Also featured, Melinda Gates and Oprah Winfrey.
