Meet the Designer-Artist

Where do you live?
I live in Corpus Christi, Texas.

What inspires you as a designer-artist?
I draw inspiration from nature when designing my handmade art-to-wear and mixed media artwork. I use recycled metal, wood, and other items as tools that I make myself.

What medium do you work with mostly?
I primarily work with copper wire and semiprecious gemstone beads.

What is the name of the piece you submitted with your success story?
Pearls of the Journey Cuff

What inspired this design?
I live on the Texas Gulf Coast. The materials and my surroundings came together to tell a story through art jewelry of a journey at sea.

How did it come together?
I planned this piece. The colors and concept had been floating around in my mind for a while. The method of construction was the fun part!

Where and How do you sell your jewelry?
I sell my work online on Etsy at: and through my website I am a regular artisan vendor at festivals in South Texas. My work is also available in several gift shops in the Corpus Christi area.
