As an artist I believe that my style has been largely influenced by my mother who never threw anything away if it could be used for anything else.  A large percentage of my art is made with items that used to be something else.  My materials could be anything from old keys, watch parts, broken glass and dishes, buttons, recycled metal, vintage fabrics, seeds, bits of wood, and tornado debris.  I even sometimes restyle vintage jewelry.  New elements are also used in my jewelry when something is just to fabulous to be ignored.

I live in Joplin, Missouri with my husband, two active sons and very large furry cat.  Ten percent of the revenue I receive from the sale of my jewelry is donated to Rapha House to help in the fight against human trafficking.  I hope you enjoy wearing my jewelry as much as I enjoy making it.
