Wire Jewelry Artist
I am absolutely fascinated with the way wire and different mediums work together. Taking wire and wrapping a porcelain cabochon or titanium druzy and using the natural flow of the wire to enhance the cabochon and create a unique piece of art to wear bring me joy. I love being able to share my creativity with others.
My process started many years ago with stained glass. A friend then taught me how to fuse dichroic and stained glass to make jewelry. She then taught me to wire wrap the piece and the rest is history. My family calls it “the hobby that grew legs”.
Currently I work with hand-painted, hand-carved porcelain cabochons creating pendants, earrings, bracelets and rings. Some of the pieces are wire-wrapped and enhanced with sterling silver or 14k gold-filled beads and Swarovski crystals. Some of them are enriched with hand woven Kumihimo cords. I weave Kumihimo cords using satin or silk cord, ribbon, various types of yarn, or seed beads.
My hope is that you enjoy your piece of art as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
