I make jewelry I would wear. I use colors to match my clothes, and I like funky, but not huge so that is reflected in my style. The most fun part is designing and experimenting with the beads until I get a look that I like. I like genuine gemstones, and I especially like to mix stones and crystal. Sometimes when in I’m in the mood for the nature girl look I go for copper and wood or copper and neutral-colored stones. I am never without a bracelet, so there is always a new style that I’m working on. I enjoy incorporating beads from vintage cast-offs into new, modern jewelry. I use only precious metals – sterling silver, 14 karat gold, and occasionally copper.
