I have been designing and handcrafting jewelry made from Silver, Copper, some Gold-Filled and Semi-Precious Gemstones since early 2006.  I’ve spent the previous 35 years working as a creative professional in Men’s Apparel, Interior Decorating and Graphic Design while fostering hobbies in Pottery & Card Design.  My journey as a Jewelry Designer is mostly ahead of me but, I have learned quite a number of skills in my travels thus far.  I use many of them to create unique, mostly “one-of-a-kind” pieces.  However, my personal favorite techniques are: wire forming, wire wrapping, wire weaving, forming, forging, shaping, texturing and piercing sheet metals, and assembling using both hot (solder) and cold (rivets) connections.  I do have a growing list of techniques to challenge my skills & talent in the future.  I hope to incorporate them into my work as I achieve them. 

As a Self Representing Artist Jewelry Designer.  Member #674, I maintain my own website at  I am also an Administrator at Starving Jewelry Artists (formerly known as Cagey Crafters), a jewelry forum ( offering a family friendly place to share and learn a wide variety of jewelry making techniques and more.
