I have had a passion for jewelry design my entire life. As a child, I manipulated my mother’s costume jewelry to create my own masterpieces. As my love for creativity grew, I explored other outlets, such as photography, drawing and sculpture. Eventually, my burning desire for creating jewelry resurfaced and I returned to my jewelry-making roots.
My contemporary work began with simple beaded pieces, such as necklaces, bracelets and earrings. In 2004, I decided I wanted to take my work to a new level so I enrolled in metalsmithing classes at the Spruill Center for the Arts.
As I began down this path, my creativity truly blossomed. Designing jewelry was in my blood. I began fabricating pieces and coming up with a plethora of new designs. Today, I am constantly thinking of new ideas and creating signature pieces. As my creativity evolves so does my jewelry.
