A Creative Mind
I started my professional art career as a designer for Hallmark Cards, Inc, after earning a fine arts degree from Columbus College of Art and Design. I've always loved 3D design and sculpture, so designing jewelry just seemed to come naturally. My approach is appropriately described by my shop name...unsupervised. I love to mix things up and I'm always looking for new color palettes and material combinations. I make my own polymer clay bead and use found objects. I fuse glass and use a variety of weaving techniques. The one thing I am consistent in, however, is high quality. Each piece I create is a work of art...one of a kind. I take great pride in fine craftsmanship, and love every piece of jewelry I create. I'm inspired by nature, and influenced by travel. I've lived in Japan and traveled across Asia and Europe.
