I work with clay and make beads, ceramic jewellery components and
have recently started working with copper and silver. Earthbutter
beads are hand rolled and hand painted making them one-of-a-kind and
no 2 beads look alike. I’m excited about all the possibilities that
exist when combining hand crafted ceramic beads and metal - the sky
is truly the limit! My inspiration comes from my natural surroundings
and every day life in a rural community in South Africa.

I have been working with lapidary and metals for 4 years now, as a
hobbyist. I am enjoying, rockhounding, lapidary, faceting, and
silversmithing, and consider myself very interested, for the first
time in artwork, and am surveying the different areas, seeking what
might be my niche. My husband and I live in Wisconsin, but travel in
a 5th wheel. We are both retired.
I am also interested in finding used equipment.
