About me

Industry Arts
Occupation jewerly artist
Location Salem, Oregon
Introduction I draw inspiration for my pieces from the world around me—water, sand, grass, flowers. The way elements move & interact with one another—water flowing around a stone or the way a river has carved out a path through a mountain to form a canyon. I work with precious metals, semi-precious & precious stones & pearls. My favorite materials to work with are sterling silver, pearls, tourmaline & peridot. I enjoy creating elegant, sophisticated pieces but my love is really for the organic feeling pieces that have been inspired by nature. Calusa (pronounced ‘ka-loosa’) comes from my children’s names—Callie, Luke & Sam. The studio is located in downtown Salem, Oregon in the Salem Arts Building.
