Unique structures and natural objects inspire me to create jewelry where organic components are set within a contemporary frame.
I hand-form every piece of my wearable sculpture from polymer clay. I use several techniques including caning, engraving, weaving, layering, and many others for which I don’t have names.
It was a fund raising activity for my temple that got me into playing with polymer clay in
2004. It was a long story with some twists and turns. In 2007 I opted to do art/craft
full time. I used to work as an environmental researcher in Oak Ridge, TN, so you know
I glow in the dark!
