About

I invite you to explore my world of jewelry. It started 3 decades ago. In the beginning I started out with seed beads. Tiny beads sewn to together to form patterns. Went on to making jewelry using stone beads. As time moved on so did I. I tried leather, bones, feathers and clay. During that time I worked for a fine jewelry store. Well I hated it. Trying to talk people into buying something they really didn’t want. So took a workshop at the Phila. College of Art. After learning some basics I began buying tools and taught myself the rest.
