Artist's Statement

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. I also create chain mail patterns that mix in glass beads.
