I am a jewelry artist and metalsmith living in Elizabethtown, PA. I create modern day talismans for the home and body inspired but not limited by ancient, medieval, and tribal cultures as well as the studio jewelry movement of the last century. I started this blog to talk about my journey as an artist. I want to share my new work, ideas, and inspirations with you. I want to keep you up to date on what I’m doing, where I’m showing, and what I’m thinking about.
I also started this blog as a way to connect with my community. By that I mean not only my geographical community, but the jewelry community, art & craft communities, and my network of collectors, connections, and supporters. I believe that it is important to reach out to all of you and nurture these ties.
