For me, colour and texture rule and most of the inspiration feeding my imagination comes from the natural world. I see knitting as art, as viable as any other, and no matter what the tool or preferred palette, in human hands, magic happens.

Jewelry

Jewelry has long been a passion. I love the feel of a beautiful stone, the soft glint of metal, the color and texture of natural elements married on a strand. I also believe that stones have special powers, sometimes endowed by a love an individual may feel towards a special piece and sometimes encapsulated in the stone itself.

Wherever I travel, I forage for lovely elements from Baltic amber to Berber silver, each piece selected for its unique qualities. These pieces are created from the heart. They are one-ofs, never mass-produced,  and can be customized by length, if desired. In rare cases, I can make similiar pieces in another metal or in different colors. Don't hesitate to ask.

Southwest in Spirit



.

Though a sea-level girl, I have fallen in love with the desert hues and ambience of New Mexico. This necklace captures the festive spirit of the land--the mix of Spanish American, native American, and all that creative humans bring to a land such in color and spirit. The piece is fashioned with a central raku bead encased in fired copper with bronze pieces from artist cristina Leonard, amber, art glass, and copper with sunflower gold silk ties adaptable to any neck.

EVERY LIVING THING



*

'Every Living Thing' because something about the combination of textures and colors excites me the way every living thing does-- the artisan copper sculpture so funky and intriquing with the copper wire trailing up through an art glass bead colored in brown and green, which then wraps around a lovely silk bronze bead flanked by slices of art glass. This intricate gathering keeps company with slices of amber, copper beads, crackle agate, and copper circles which are ties with silk sari ribbons adjustable for any neck,

MONET



*

Something about this piece evoked Monet's Waterlillies for me. Perhaps it was the handmade glass slightly luminescent like water with the scrolled raku bead picking up the same ethereal blue or even the silk bead wrapped in copper that captured the mood. Copper and silver beads, more raku, art glass, plus fresh water pearls, amber, abalone and lapis lazuli all add to this cool dive into a pool of blue. Copper toggle. Strand 16 " long.

The Wilderness Trail



*

This is a favorite piece and one I love so much, I won't be sorry if no one claims it.

Strand is 18" long. Majestic, striking and amazingly comfortable to wear.

Where is amethyst born? Deep in the earth, caught between layers of millenia, singing the earth song. All right then, observe the stone pendant, an agate beaming outward in cream, slate mauve  with brilliant inclusions of tawny brown and real amethyst, the stone master ensure me.

Bluebell Flyer



bluebell_flyer_512

*

In my humble opinion, this is the perfect shade of bluebell meets cornflower blue with the porcelain butterfly picking up all those blue, cream, toasted colors that evoke certain kinds of antique pottery. For that reason, I echoed the blue in the silk sari bead above it and in the art glass wedges and slices along its lengthy. Besides copper and bronze, agate beads help to catch the antique pottery mood. The ties are hand-dyed silk and make this necklace adjustable.
