I am a maker of jewelry, a teacher, a lover of Kung Fu movies, and pho. My curiosity has taken me around the country and the globe, and since arriving in Salt Lake City in 2013 from New Orleans I have been both encouraged and inspired by the depth of the artistic community I have found here.
In my work I combine the traditional techniques of wirework and bead weaving to create unique jewelry with a modern aesthetic. All of my pieces are hand formed and wrapped, and the beads are stitched into place - one at a time - with loving care. I have been working in this style since the idea came to me over Chinese-food leftovers on Thanksgiving weekend 2007.
I hope in the future to continue my travels in the service of selling my work (and just for fun!) while maintaining my home base amongst the mountains, underneath the (usually) blue skies.
