Meet the Designer-Artist

Where do you live?
I lived in Pennsylvania but have gotten married and moved to Belgium.

What inspires you as a designer-artist?
Mostly nature and things organic.

What medium do you work with mostly?
Sterling silver and copper.

Why did you become enchanted with this style of jewelry-making?
I have always loved using raw material and through fire creating something new. It seems almost magical to me.

Where and How do you sell your jewelry?
I sell on etsy and through my website

What is the name of the piece you submitted with your success story?
Silver Wysteria

What inspired this design?
My favorite pieces of jewelry have always been chokers. I wanted something solid yet fragile looking. I found the cameo and designed the piece around that.

How did it come together?
I planned it out. I figured out the measurements I thought would look best and what flow I wanted.

What inspired you to donate your bead(s) to Circle of Hope?

I simply enjoy donating to different causes, if I can do that while being able to do what I love, great!
