I am a self taught jewelry and mixed media artist. I love to mix
metals and semi-precious I sell small scale via the
internet and a few small stores and trunk shows. I have learned so
much from Ganoksin and am forever grateful for allowing me to go to
art school with out having to actually go to school.

I am a grateful apprentice of Nature and in particular, the precious
gifts of the Earth. It is this attraction that has led me to learn
about and experience the craft of jewelry-making.

I am new to the jewelry design profession. Although I worked as a
silversmith in my early 20’s, I veered off into another career path
for the next 30 years. I am now retired and have gotten back onto
the creative path.
Last year I started my business, Aural Euphoria, and while still a
fledgling, I am have built a small but devoted following. I design
and create asymmetric earrings. Each side of a pair of earrings are
different but with a related theme. One side is usually longer then
the other. My earrings are “f or women who hear the world
differently”. I use a variety of components, charms, beads, metal,
glass, and recycled and found objects.
I am investigating new ways to make unique components for my
earrings and found this site through a search for etching
techniques, my current project.
