I am a Springdale Pa. based jewelry artisan. Recently certified by Rio in PMC with Tim Mccreight. I started 5 years ago stringing and bead weaving, since then I have taken many classes with some amazing instructors. My interests are in Mixed media and most of my work reflects my interest in mixed metals and many different techniques. I incorporate Precious Metal Clays, sheet metals, polymer, wire, and beads to create what I would call a very organic statement. I have also taught many classes in jewelry design, basic stringing, bead weaving, pmc and polymer clay to many groups and organizations. I am a member of the PMC, Polymer Clay Guilds of Western Pa. and the O.C.B.A. (obsessive,compulsive,beading association), also, the Saxonburg Area Artists Coop.
