I make a variety of different kinds of jewelry. I do this mainly because I like to learn new techniques and expand my range. I really don't know how to describe my style because I think it changes. I am really drawn to make jewelry that is inspired by a bead hop where you are given a piece of art as an inspiration. The multicolored necklace pictured above is such a piece.

I like to use vintage or materials from nature. I love to use materials found in nature like sea shells and pearls and materials made from nature like ceramics.. From looking at my jewelry you can see I love to use ceramics and polymer clay beads as focals. I use a wide variety of beads. I use to use beads that were on the small side, but recently I have started working with larger beads.
I have started doing more metal work. I bought Cindy Wimmer's book about making chains and clasps from metals and I bought a tumbler so I am now making more of my components like the silver connector and silver clasp in the blue necklace. I don't really care to work with tiny seed beads. I do like peanut beads and superduos. I love the texture of Irish waxed lace and use it in lots of my jewelry like the starfish bracelet.
I really use every color. Personally, I love greens, purples, and blues the best.
I can't wait to see who my partner is and get beads from him or her. I do love beads!
