1. when did you first start designing jewelry?
When I moved to Michigan from Pennsylvania in 1991, I took a jewelry making class at our local art center. I loved it so much I enrolled at the local university and completed studies receiving a BFA with a concentration in metals (quite a change from my previous occupation of nursing). I went full-circle and taught at the same art center where I took my first class and began to sell my jewelry at their gallery shop. I no longer teach but they continue to carry my work in the shop.
2. what is your favorite piece to wear?
I always wear earrings but I think my favorite piece to wear is a set of my bangles. They are also my biggest sellers.
3. what inspires you when creating new pieces?
I take inspiration from current fashion for sure. Sometimes just playing around with the metal will inspire a design. Mostly I think I look at classic jewelry designs and try to make them modern.
the winner will be chosen at random on monday, march 7th : )
