Get to Know

I'm a former RN but can no longer work in my profession due to prior injuries. Also a breast cancer survivor approaching 8 years as I open this studio, which is how I became a jewelry artisan - from buying a handmade BC Awareness watch on eBay. That watch inspired me to now do what I absolutely love. Create and express myself thru jewelry. I started out simply stringing necklaces, bracelets, earrings and watches which I'd wear myself and my former patients would end up asking me to create something, for them. My love of designing has branched out and brought me to the desire and plans to create pieces with Polymer Clay, Precious Metal Clay, and metalsmithing (to include cold connections, stamping, etc) and also torch firing with enamels and soldering. My tastes and styles vary so much I couldn't ever fall into one or two categories. What I create is eclectic, which reflects all aspects of my interests and what I enjoy in life. In Eclectica Jewelry you'll find the finest crystals, gemstones, wire art, glass & lampwork beads used in a myriad of designs for all personalities and occasions.
