Wire wrapping using sterling silver findings, quality gem stones,
and Swarovski crystals is what I am comfortable with. Over the
course of time, I have learned some techniques and acquired some
practice with metal work using sterling silver. I enjoy giving the
things I make as gifts to my friends and family and I keep some for
myself too. I am continuing to learn more and more techniques
because my dream is to make a stunning piece of jewelry one of these
