I freeze when I see the words “About Myself”, not know how to
describe ME accuately. I’m foremost a mom, with about a thousand job
titles. I fell in love with jewelry making about 10 yrs ago, attend
as many classes as I can and started a business on the side. My main
focus is hand patina’d jewelry with found objects and collaged
pieces. A big bucket of rusty findings excites me more than a trip to
Tiffany’s!! I like to incorporate the unusual with the traditional,
working out the design as I go. Each step has to feel right as I
work, just not look right in a sketch.

I have recently been introduced to lost wax casting and will be
incorporating that into my jewelry deisgns. I study with a
magnificent teacher Maggie S. who really helps me to fulfill the
vision in my head, with the technical part of jewelry making.

My small business is a tribute to Hospice (a unit in our city is on
the sixth floor of a hospital) and a portion of each sale is donated
to LifeTime Care-Hospice Division in Rochester NY.

within the program. mine is done in home, so that may make things
easier as well… well done
