With 22 years of jewelry making experience, I love to teach about the techniques and materials used to create stunning works of wearable art. I’m a metalsmith, an explorer, a beader, and an experimenter. I can assist students of many different ages and backgrounds on their individual journey of building skills and self-confidence.

My goal is always to see the broader potential of each student. Encouraging growth of self-expression reveals a deeper understanding of one’s self and the world in which we live. Jewelry can be beautiful, healing, personal or political. It can be fun while integrating understandings of a broader curriculum; it can contain concepts that reflect deeper expressions of historical and conceptual contexts.
