Whether pendants or
earrings, books or
masks, prayer beads or
baskets, it's fun to
design art from
inexpensive materials.  I
love to make pieces that
require a closer look
before one recognizes
the source material.   

The whimsical work I am
doing now contrasts
sharply with the elegant
jewelry I have made and
sold for years.

The joyful experience of
creating each piece is
what motivates me to
create art today. The
process tends to satisfy
me more than the end

Let me know your
thoughts.  I would love
to hear from you.
