“I would describe my jewelry as vibrant splashes of color. My inspiration comes form travels to the Caribbean, Hawaii, Russia and from growing up in Western Kansas. I work in weaving with Japanese seed beads, and making jewelry with lampworked glass beads which I’ve created in my home studio.

I enjoy creating wearable art, like my hand-dyed silk scarves and jewelry to add splashy touches to everyday life. I also contribute lampwork beads to the Beads of Courage Program, which provides beads for children receiving cancer treatments to recognize milestones in their journey.”
