About Me:
I have been making jewelry since I was a teenager in San Francisco. I took my first silversmithing class at the DeYoung Museum and after that I was hooked. I continued to take silversmithing classes all through high school and college. In college I majored in art and science. After college I pursued my goal of becoming an environmental geologist and continued to work on silversmithing. I then became a teacher and was one for 20 years. Eight years ago I went back to my love for silversmithing fulltime. My interest in geology is clearly shown in my jewelry with its emphasis on precious and semi-precious stones. My jewelry embraces both the scientist and the artist in me.
