Artist Bio

I was born in Germany in the early 1970s and moved to America in the early 1990s.
I have always had a desire to create things, whether it be gardening, clothing, crafts
and now, sterling silver jewelry. In 2009 I started working for Betsy Frost Design where I apprenticed for 2 years. After my time at Betsy Frost Design, I came out with my own line of jewelry. My love of gardening and being close to the seashore is where I get the inspiration
for many of my designs. The shape of a flower’s petal or the wings of a dragonfly mirrored in
sterling silver speak to me of nature and the beauty of our Earth.

Handmade sterling silver. I design my jewelry out of wax or recycled metal and cast into sterling silver. I also use other silversmith techniques such as sawing, forging, soldering, polishing etc.
