Texture appeals to me. Most of my work involves bead weaving techniques. I work mainly with glass beads because I am drawn to the play of light and color, but you can find recycled items in my work. I like incorporating mechanical items like bearings and nuts and bolts in my jewelry. I have a series made from stainless steel hex nuts. The metal bracelets and necklaces have a comfortable heft while being slinky at the same time. Rings and pendants use ball bearings to allow spinning. This year, the new series is a fish scale weave of jump rings.
