In 1962, when I was about 6 years old, I started collecting corn silk from our garden and bits of broken glass, saving them in my Dad's cigar boxes. I thought they were like gold and diamonds. Growing up in Europe and the Far East, I continued being enthralled with jewelry. I learned to cut gems in South Korea at a lapidary shop when I was twelve and to cast and construct jewelry shortly after that.  My formal education was in Art at several universities, finishing with a Masters of Fine Arts in Goldsmithing from SUNY New Paltz in New York. A couple of weeks after I graduated I was in my first craft show, and haven’t stopped yet.

For over 30 years I’ve been striving to make what I hope will be your favorite jewelry.

My work has been carried in hundreds of galleries across the country as well as in France and Italy. I am also represented in the book 500 Gemstone Jewels (Lark, 2010), Best of Worldwide Jewelry Artists Vol. 1 (Kennedy 2011) and in the collection of the Cooper Hewitt Museum.

I am most gratified to be in the collections of the thousands of people who have found my jewelry at craft events and have continued to wear it over the years.

Thank you for your interest in my designs, and I hope you find this site enjoyable. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is any way I may help. The “jewelry” link above shows a small group of my kinetic jewelry designs. Some of these may be available at a craft gallery near you; please check the “Gallery List” page to find those currently carrying my work. If this isn’t convenient, please email me for a link to a complete catalog. Wholesale inquiries are also welcome.

Best Wishes for a wonderful year!
