About me

Occupation Jewelry Designer
Location Cape Cod, Massachusetts, United States
Introduction A chance visit to a dollhouse shop in the Cotswolds many years ago turned out to be a collision with destiny for me. I was instantly and completely besotted with the tiny world I saw and began creating 1/12th scale potted plants and flowers with increasingly precise detail and became known for the miniscule buds and teensy branches I delighted in adding to my pieces. Decades later, I discovered the joy of creating my own jewelry and a much larger, though no less detailed, world opened up for me -- to my enormous delight! The most enjoyable part of making jewelry for me is including the same level of minute detail -- everything from combining intricate textures to molding the tiniest of seashells -- that I gave to my work in scale miniatures. Echoes of my intense love for botanicals, miracles from the sea and lots and lots of texture still exist in my work even though the medium has changed. I am a Certified PMC Artisan, a juried member of the Society of Cape Cod Craftsmen and the Artisans' Guild of Cape Cod, a Fellow member of the International Guild of Miniature Artisans and a proud member of EtsyMetalClay (EMC Team), and the Creative Glass Guild of Etsy (CGGE).
