I am originally from Massachusetts but being a military wife, I have moved a lot. For the past 16 years I have lived in Maggie Valley NC.  I am actually a gourd artist of 20 years that fell in love with doing jewelry.  Metalsmithing has always intrigued me, so when a class was offered at Haywood Community college in Clyde, NC a few years ago, I signed up and have been doing metalsmithing ever since.  

I work mostly with Argentium silver, but do incorporate titanium, copper and brass in some of my pieces. I enjoy doing the Native American style of jewelry by stamping and incorporating different gem stones in to my work.
