A little about me...
I'm a creative type with a passion for making things with my hands and heart. I began my metalsmithing journey in 2014 after attending a class at Peninsula School of Art in Door County Wisconsin, taught by an amazing artist, Beth Millner. I created in my home based studio in Bettendorf, Iowa for a year and a half. I now have a brick and mortar shop in Davenport, Iowa. I LOVE my job and look forward to each new day of growing and learning in technique and design!
The jewelry ~
My handcrafted jewelry is forged from a variety of elements including metals of silver, copper, and brass (reclaimed when available), as well as gem stones. My inspiration - nature, flowers, delicate, unique, comfortable, lovely. The addition of patina is a favorite and much used technique of mine, giving pieces character and a welcoming wearable feeling.
