Meet the Artist
For a long time, I searched for the accurate description to my work. One of my former students
(I was a public school music teacher for 36+ years) told someone that "her pieces are a little rustic, yet a little refined."
I love that description ~ it's exactly the look and feel I am looking to impart in each piece. One of a kind. Artful. Unique. Not fussy, but fun and easy to wear. "Artsy" goods.
Revealing the magical interplay between metal and stone is like conducting a symphony - where to add light, shadow, color, space - add a little fire into the mix and voila! Earrings, bracelets, necklaces - they're all fun to create!
Vintage hymnal pages inspired another generation – choosing words from these well loved texts to create meaning and inspiration for another generation is a joy. Repurposing that which would otherwise be bound for a landfill. Giving new life to that which was held so dear in another time.
All of my creations are one-of-a-kind. I will be shipping you the exact item pictured and described. I do not make to order, and rarely accept special orders. Some pieces can however, be adjusted to fit, or ear wires adjusted (handmade ear wire exchanged for lever backs) - just ask. You can be assured that the item you see is the item you will receive! I want my customers to love their new piece!

Come see me in person at an art fair and see what I’ve been inspired by lately. Or see what I’ve curated to display at one of my partner venues. Or follow my Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or website to see what’s new. I’m still roaming and exploring, still enjoying the time worn and vintage and the beauty of nature!!
My jewelry and blank journals are available at Redeemed in Manistee, MI.
