About me

Gender Female
Industry Arts
Occupation Self-employed jewelry artisan
Location Ogdensburg, New York, United States
Introduction I, my husband and our Spinone Italiano (Cara) can be found on the Oswegatchie River in Northern New York. I moved my jewelry business from Albany, NY to follow my husband's new career as Executive Director of the Frederic Remington Art Museum here in Ogdensburg. I make hand crafted artisan jewelry using precious metals, pearls, precious and semi-precious stones, handcrafted lampwork glass, Swarovksi crystals, ancient trade beads, and a continually growing list of materials too long to itemize here. I enjoy all manner of jewelry creation and, as a result, find it difficult to focus on any one style or skill set .. I knot pearls; string beads; bend and wrap wire; cut, saw and drill metal sheet and continue to experiment with Precious Metal Clay. I never tire of learning new skills, and hope you enjoy the images and ramblings I post here. Please feel free to contact me if you're in the area (or even if you're not in the area). I would love to show you more!
