Get to Know

For the past 10 years, I've turned my passion for chainmaille, beads and metal work into a fulltime career. From my brightly lit studio in Saranac, MI I handcraft each item selecting the perfect stone, pearl or Swarovski crystal to complement my Sterling silver metalwork. Selecting my gemstones and beads with an eye for detail and quality, I work to make my jewelry stand out from the rest. I always strive to learn new techniques and am constantly taking classes every year to try to perfect my craft. My teachers are Lynn of Midnight Moon Kay Rashka of Ritual Embellishments Jacqueline Lincoln of Long Canyon Jewelry Sharilyn Miller Bead on a Wire Don Norris of Academy of Silversmithing Wendy Witchner of Wendy Witchner Designs Diane Miller of Diane Miller Designs. You can find my work in person at Flat River Cottage in Lowell MI.
