A jewelry artist for more than 12 years, I specialize in designing and handcrafting unique pearl jewelry inspired by nature. I use a diversity of freshwater and saltwater pearls of different colors and forms (keshi, flat, round, baroque, mabe). I have two different pearl drills that I use in my studio, which allows me to very precisely drill holes of various diameters and orientations. I juxtapose pearls and gemstones into patterns I see in nature, including flower structures and branching patterns of trees and flowing water. With the enormous palette of colors and shapes of my pearls, I am able to create pleasing color combinations and textures. I enjoy working with clients and exhibiting my work at fine art and fine craft shows throughout Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.
